On May 25th 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become law in the UK, marking the biggest shake up in data protection laws in 20 years. The Government has confirmed in the recent Queen’s Speech that Brexit will have no impact on the legislation leaving schools with less than a year to ensure their data systems are compliant with the new rules.

GDPR significantly extends the rights of data subjects (people about whom you hold or process data) and will introduce a series of stringent requirements around transparency, opt-ins and reporting data breaches with severe fines for organisations which fail to comply.

Schools will need to take cyber security seriously and systematically.


The conference aims to deliver practical guidance on:

  • Preparing for the new GDPR privacy legislation in May 2018
  • Understanding what a good data compliance culture looks like
  • Responding to data requests
  • Safeguarding issues
  • Ensuring your school has secure and robust IT & information systems
