Featured Campaign from Leeds City Council
Data Protection e-Learning for Schools, Academies and Colleges
In the wake of the introduction of GDPR last year, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of data security incidents reported to the ICO by the Education sector.
The increase in the number of self-reported cases does, in some instances, represent a misunderstanding of the new regulation; in part due to a lack of awareness and training around what is a data breach, and staff being unable to differentiate a near-miss from a data breach and the response required.
In instances, it has paid to be overcautious but staff who lack training and general awareness of the principles of GDPR are more likely to 1. Commit a breach 2. Take unnecessary action in reporting a near-miss to the ICO.
To date, the ICO has highlighted two specific cases involving educational establishments; a University received a £120,000 fine following a “serious” security breach involving the personal data of nearly 20,000 people, and a head teacher received a fine totaling over £1,000 for transferring data between schools.
Adequate data protection training is an essential part of your schools' journey to GDPR compliance.
Leeds City Council’s Data Protection e-Learning course will help you develop a better understanding of good practice and how to be compliant with the laws around managing data in school.
Key features of the e-Learning course include:
