Data Protection

The European Parliament has formally approved the EU's general data protection reform package, which includes General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The final text of the GDPR was published in the EU Official Journal on 4 May and will come into force 20 days after this date. The provisions will take effect on 25 May 2018.

The GDPR is going to introduce significant reform to data protection law and the best thing schools can do to prepare is to ensure they are complying with the current law and ICO guidance (which is being updated with the new Regulation in mind). ISC linked to several updated ICO publications in last month’s report and schools might also like to keep an eye on the ICO’s dedicated GDPR microsite: https://dpreform.org.uk/

There are some matters that are to be decided by member states’ own regulators so schools should not be tempted to get training too early. ISC will be following the progress of the GDPR and endeavour to work with DCMS and the ICO to ensure that clear information is disseminated to schools.
