In last month’s report, ISC informed schools that substantial changes to the UK’s data protection regime will apply from 25 May 2018.
Several law firms have published articles on the new Regulation to outline the main changes to be aware of and what organisations should be doing now, many suggesting that training on the new requirements should be undertaken. At a recent event attended by ISC, the ICO suggested that training should not be undertaken too early as there are still matters to be decided by individual member states. Schools should therefore keep an eye on the ICO’s dedicated microsite which can now be found here and read the ICO’s own guidance on “12 steps to take now”.
