Time: 4.00-4.30pm

In this 30-minute webinar, we will explore:

  • what the role of the DPO involves and who can (and can’t) undertake it
  • training requirements and needs to successfully take on the role
  • the impact the role will have in your school
  • the timeframes for GDPR implementation.

When the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018, schools must ensure they have a data protection officer (DPO) in place.

It’s a new role for schools, holding many responsibilities including ensuring GDPR compliance, educating and training staff on requirements and processes and being the main point of contact between the school and the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

But what does this look like in practice and who will be your DPO? Join this webinar and gain guidance on how the role could be implemented in your school to ensure you’re compliant with the new laws and ready for the GDPR. 

You’ll be able to download slides on the day of the webinar and put questions to Dai during the event.
