GDPR has changed how schools need to operate...
“There’s a lot in the GDPR you’ll recognise from the current law, but make no mistake, this one’s a game changer for everyone.”
“To meet the challenges I’ve described, we need to move from a mindset of compliance to a mindset of commitment: commitment to managing data sensitively and ethically.”
“Accountability is at the centre of all this: of getting it right today, getting it right in May 2018, and getting it right beyond that.”
Information Commissioner 18 January 2017
