Dr Patrick Anglin
Since August 2021, Dr Anglin had served as The UWI’s first University Data Protection Officer and runs the University Data Protection Office. He completed his doctoral studies – a Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) focusing on Innovation and Social Informatics – in 2015, at the Manchester Business School (MBS), University of Manchester. Over the last few years, Dr Anglin has been involved in several initiatives at the IT strategic level and has provided leadership in areas such as, inter alia: Identity Management (the current platform used to ensure that documents can be securely shared across the University); Internet Protocol (IP) Address rationalization across The UWI (to ensure that technology services are seamlessly delivered enterprise-wide); An Information Strategy for The University; and The University-wide IT Policy framework. Over the years, he has taught several courses, both inside and outside The UWI, in not only computing but several other areas – from Ethics to General Management. Outside the University, he is actively involved with the University Council of Jamaica (UCJ), where he sits on its Computing Board and is an Assessor (elevated to Chair in 2019) who evaluates institutions which apply for Programme Accreditation, or to register with the UCJ. His current focus is the new paradigm on the privacy of personal information that has been encoded in global legislation and will eventually affect the Caribbean in a significant way. He believes that, given the greater shift to online activities by most organisations, there is a very real possibility that the region will be negatively affected by the ‘new’ privacy paradigm. Dr Anglin stands ready to assist and will, as he is wont to do, embrace the challenges in this new space.
