Understanding your data protection responsibilities - Mon 21 Sep 9:00-12:00

This ICT4C practical workshop, to be held at The Innovation Centre Bradford, covers everything you must know to ensure that your school can be eSecure - from understanding the Data Protection Act to using secure file transfer for sensitive data.

Schools today carry a huge amount of data stored on a vast array of devices both inside and outside the school – in the cloud for example. There is no such thing as 100% in security, sooner or later an incident will occur, and when it does, you want to make sure you have the right procedures, policies and controls in place to avoid the wrath of the ICO and being front page news for the wrong reasons. It is the legal responsibility of the school to take appropriate measures to protect data and demonstrate that risk is being managed responsibly. The seventh data-protection principle states that you need to take ‘appropriate technical and organisational measures’ to protect the data.
