These sessions will provide an overview of updates and changes to the UK’s data protection legislation and case law during the past year.  It will also look at updates to Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) guidance and enforcement actions to identify key areas where Scottish independent schools might focus on improving compliance.   It will include a horizon scanner looking at further changes anticipated in the year ahead, set out in the regulator’s 3-year action plan (ICO25) and how best to prepare.
