The GDPR: Is your school, college or university compliant?

How have education organisations been preparing for the GDPR and were they ready?

To find out the answer, we commissioned an independent research survey.

The research…

In March 2018, over 500 education professionals in North West England including headteachers, governors, IT managers, security managers and facilities managers were quizzed to learn about their readiness for GDPR. This produced some interesting results including:

Only 22% believe they are compliant

Key trends from the survey, alongside insights from GDPR readiness assessments carried out by our security consultants, has gone into the creation of this whitepaper.

What you’ll learn

The whitepaper contains best-practice advice to help you to get to grips with the requirements of the GDPR, including:

  • What steps you can take to reduce the risk of a fine
  • How robust documentation can improve compliance
  • Ways to make staff your first line of defence

As well as finding out how prepared your peers are for the new legislation.
