Data Security

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.

It is imperative that key personnel in your organisation are aware that the law is changing to the GDPR, and start to factor this into their future planning. They should start to identify areas that could cause compliance problems under the GDPR.

In A Nutshell

What Happens Next?

Once you get in touch, one of our representatives will contact you to arrange a site visit to carry out the audit. We will ask a few simple questions about your current setup etc.

What Do We Receive?

We will provide you with a detailed document outlining your current data security situation and the steps required to improve it.

How Long Will It Take?

We will be on-site for up to 4 hours carrying out the audit but will not cause any downtime for you. We may ask a few questions and take over each computer for a few minutes.

Can You Fix Issues For Us?

Of course! We have a team of highly qualified data protection specialists ready to solve any of the issues that arise during the survey.

Data Protection in Schools

Data protection is the means by which the privacy rights of individuals are safeguarded in relation to the processing of their personal data. Therefore, schools must be aware of the legal duties placed upon them when collecting or processing personal data.Schools bear a considerable responsibility and accountability for the development of young people, for the implementation of Government policies and for the expenditure of State funds.

Schools accumulate substantial amounts of personal information about pupils, parents, staff, management and suppliers. It is therefore particularly important for schools that appropriate and up-to-date policies and procedures are in place for the protection and proper use of all such accumulated data and records.

What can I do NOW to prepare for the GDPR?

It is imperative that key personnel in your organisation are aware that the law is changing to the GDPR, and start to factor this into their future planning. They should start to identify areas that could cause compliance problems under the GDPR.

Initially, data controllers should review and enhance their organisations risk management processes, as implementing the GDPR could have significant implications for resources; especially for more complex organisations. Any delay in preparations may leave your organisation susceptible to compliance issues following the GDPR’s introduction.
