Data Protection Health Check for Independent Schools

Data Protection Health Check for Independent Schools

This service has been specifically created to offer independent schools that are members of ISBA a cost effective but extremely thorough alternative to a full data protection audit. Think of it as an audit “lite” but at the fraction of the cost of an audit.

The aim of the health check is to determine and assess the School’s level of compliance with the main requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018.  If your School carries out digital direct marketing, then we will also assess its compliance with the relevant provisions of the Privacy and Electronic (EC) Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR).
