Data Analytics Guidelines

A series designed to provide guidance on the legal and ethical issues impacting data analysts

The Guides:

  • Help make sure things go smoothly from a legal and ethical point of view
  • Protect you, your data and those that provide the data, which can save you time and trouble
  • Have GDPR / UK Data Protection Act 2018 requirements built in throughout

To date, 14 Guides have been developed - click on the links below to download these in print-ready PDF format.
