The training will cover data protection basics as well as 'high risk' areas such as information security and sharing personal data.
We will cover issues specific to independent schools such as:
We also provide practical guidance on how to comply with the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018:
The consequences of getting it wrong can include fines of up to the higher of €20 million or 4% of worldwide turnover. In addition, it is now much easier for individuals to bring a claim if their data protection rights have been infringed.
The risks have increased recently as new technology and ways of working have meant that schools are handling information in ever more sophisticated ways. Pupils, parents and staff are also increasingly aware of their information rights and appear more willing to report non-compliance on the part of schools to the Information Commissioner (who regulates data protection).
We will provide an interactive session incorporating case studies based on real examples and group problem sharing, with a strong focus on practical solutions.
The training will give delegates a practical understanding of how data protection issues should be managed in an independent schools context.
The cost of attending the session is £166.67 +VAT (£200 incl.VAT) which includes a copy of the seminar materials (slides and case studies).
Due to recent developments regarding the COVID-19, and in respect to our delegates, clients and employees, please can we ask you not to attend this event/seminar if you have travelled to/from any of the affected areas as identified by Public Health England within the last 2 weeks and/or if you are experiencing any of the virus symptoms.
