Mary Immaculate College (MIC) maintains the highest quality of excellence in its approach to the management of information and data under its control.
As a publicly-funded body, the College is subject to Irish Freedom of Information legislation. Like all organisations controlling data that includes personal information (e.g. students, staff, applicants for courses or applicants for employment), the College also abides by Irish Data Protection legislation and it operates within the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) framework.
The meeting of these requirements together with related continuous quality improvement processes is managed by the Information Compliance Office. Other work undertaken by this office includes records management as well as risk management in respect of the data control environment, together with provision of advice and guidance to units of the College that require support for the generation of contracts or Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) where exchange of personal or commercially sensitive information occurs.
