Cyber crime and general data protection regulation masterclass: Why you need to be ready – Thursday 21 September 2017

The law is changing.

GDPR is coming – its scope is vast, its enforcement powers are across-the-board and the penalties it can impose are severe, but most schools haven’t heard or know what it is.
What are the new rules regarding the personal data of children and adults?
This masterclass will guide you through the new GDPR rules to ensure your school is compliant and help you keep safe from cyber-attacks.
Don’t be one of the 40%.


Given the approach of increased Data Protection requirements (GDPR) and the continued onslaught of cyber-attacks affecting both private and public sector organisations, we are running a ‘Cyber Crime and GDPR – Why you need to be ready” masterclass for Headteachers, Senior Leaders and Governors of schools and academies in the South West.

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will form part of UK Law from 25th May 2018 and whilst its requirements are similar to the UK Data Protection Act, there are new elements and significant enhancements, which include a fine of up to 2% of your annual turnover or 10 million Euros for non-compliance. The new GDPR, will impose a duty on all organisations to report certain types of data breaches to the Information Commissioner’s Office within 72 hours, and in some cases to the individuals affected.

Given these new requirements and the rising number of cyber-attacks, which lead to organisations losing sensitive, personal data, there has never been a more important time to take action to ensure that your school is adequately responding.

This unique masterclass brings together expert keynote speakers from the world of Data Protection and Cyber Security to help you ensure that your school safeguards its information, as well as its reputation. The event will conclude with an exclusive Q and A panel session.
