GDPR and Covid-19

Schools and colleges are under immense pressure during these unprecedented times, but data protection is still key.
We’ve created specialised services to help your organisation manage the fast-changing situation presented by the coronavirus outbreak. Managing GDPR compliance correctly now, will save a lot of time and energy when the crisis is over.

What We Offer

DPIA Support


Many schools and colleges have implemented remote learning to support their students’ studies. While these systems may have been in place before, they way they are used will have drastically changed. When a new system is put in place, or you make large changes to how personal data is used, you must do a Data Protection Impact Assessment.

As many institutions will be dealing with the same situation, we can work with you to customise a template DPIA and ensure you have the right measures in place to mitigate risks posed by home working and learning.

With our support, you can be confident you have met your regulatory requirement.
