Independent Schools

What’s this event about?

At this event we will consider key data protection issues and risks for independent schools. We will cover:

  • How to manage ‘difficult’ subject access requests and common pitfalls to avoid
  • Information security and personal data breaches
  • Data sharing within the school and externally
  • Data protection documentation and accountability
  • The latest developments, for example, around international data transfers and how to use AI in compliance with data protection laws
  • Fundraising and development.

We will also look at the practical implications for schools of the new Data Protection and Digital Information Bill, particularly the proposals to introduce a ‘senior responsible officer’ and new rules around subject access requests, and what these mean in practice.

We will use case studies based on real examples and group problem sharing, with a strong focus on pragmatic solutions.

The training will give delegates a practical understanding of how data protection issues should be managed in an independent school context.

 

Who should attend?

This training will be relevant to anyone with a data protection responsibility within  the independent schools sector, such as data protection lead, head of IT, compliance officer or bursars.
