Reporting a data leak

As an organisation, we are duty-bound to report the occurrence of any ‘data leaks’. But what is a data leak and how can you report one?

What is a data leak?
We say that a data leak has occurred if personal data disappears or ends up (or may end up) in another party’s hands. This includes accidentally erasing data, for example, or accidentally emailing an overview of student data to someone external to HAN.

How do you report a data leak?
Report any data leaks as soon as possible to the Service Desk using the form or on (024) 353 16 66.
