Understanding Data Protection

27/09/2017

 

It is important that schools understand their Data Protection obligations especially with the introduction of a new law called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will come into affect from May 2018. Like the Data Protection Act, GDPR will be applicable to schools and they are required to know how they collect, share and hold personal information. For most schools this a daunting task.

360Data is a self-view tool that has been developed by SWGfL, along the same lines at their award winning e-safety 360 Degree Safe tool. It allows schools to work through their process and systems so that they can map where they are and if improvements are needed.

360Data is just one of the tools SEGfL will be offering to support their schools in understanding Data Protection.
