Data compliance, protection and GDPR - principles and tools

Sciences Po provides you tools dedicated to compliance and processing security and carries out information, awareness and support actions to ensure compliance with regulations. PhDs: because you do not have access rights to the intranet, you can request access to these documents from the general secretary of your laboratory or contact us.

The processing of personal data is part of a French and European legal framework for data protection. Its objective is to strengthen the rights of individuals and to empower the actors who are responsible for ensuring and justifying the compliance and security of personal data processing throughout its life cycle.

What is personal data?

Any information relating to a natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, is personal data, regardless of whether the information is confidential or public. In order for such data to be no longer considered personal, they must be made anonymous in such a way as to make it impossible to identify the data subject. Warning: if it is possible to identify a person by cross-checking several pieces of information (age, sex, city, diploma, etc.) or by using various technical means, the data are always considered personal.
