A Ticking Time Bomb: New Data Protection Regime Introduces Significant New Obligations (and Obstacles) for Schools 

Is your school prepared for the imminent changes to Data Protection law? 

The upcoming General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect in May 2018,  and comprehensively re-writes the rules on data protection, consent, retention of data, subject access, record keeping, data security, all backed by a significantly increased Fine regime – don’t get caught out! 

Gilson Gray LLP,  in partnership with SCIS,  is proud to present an overview of the forthcoming changes to data protection law,  and to help put into context the significantly increased risks that mishandling or leaking personal data may have on a school’s finances and reputation.

This overview is an excellent icebreaker for those looking to understand: 

-       What constitutes personal data?

-       What are the statutory minimum standards?

-       What is the role of the Information Commissioner’s Office?

-       What are the annual and ongoing obligations of data controllers and data processors?

-       What mandatory changes need to be made before May 2018?

-       What are the risks of non-compliance?     

The new regulations will affect all aspects of school operations,  and hence this this overview is highly recommended for a range of key personnel. 

**Please register as soon as possible and by Friday 12th May at the latest**
