Data Protection Laws

What are Your Responsibilities?

Comply with relevant laws:  if you are working with data, you must become familiar with the data protection laws that apply to your activities.  Contact the Office of the General Counsel for assistance.  Questions regarding HIPAA Privacy should be directed to Yale’s Chief HIPAA Privacy Officer; questions regarding HIPAA Security should be directed to the Information Security Office.

Follow Yale’s requirements:  Yale policies and procedures addressing data privacy and security apply to activity in the U.S. as well as overseas. 

Report concerns and incidents:  any actual or potential breach of personal data must be reported immediately to Yale’s Information Security Office and to the Office of the General Counsel so that Yale can act swiftly to protect affected persons and meet regulatory reporting requirements.
