Description

Are you ready for the GDPR?

From 25th May 2018, the Data Protection Act (DPA) will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will mean a huge changes for schools and the way that data is managed.

We are already aware of our a duty of care to ensure that data is kept safe and secure but the GDPR will mean increased responsibility to ensure this information is compliant with the new guidelines and regulation. Non-compliance can currently see significant fines imposed by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), not to mention affected Ofsted ratings in terms of policies and procedures.

To prevent this, schools are urged to start thinking about the impact the GDPR will have and begin best practice and procedures ahead of the change.

But what exactly is GDPR?

The GDPR is a new data protection regulation will replace the current Data Protection Act (DPA). While there will still be some similarities, the GDPR requires significant changes to existing data protection rules and will certainly impact the way that schools, academies and other educational establishments currently manage data under the DPA.

At this stage, how GDPR will affect schools is uncertain, however Link2ICT is always here to provide schools with support and guidance for best practice, particularly around safeguarding and data security. To this end, we would like to invite you to join us at one of our GDPR workshops where you can find out more about the steps you need to take to be fully equipped and ready when the GDPR arrives next May.
