Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the impact of GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 on schools today

  • Learn tips on how to ensure compliance

  • Understand the challenge of data protection in schools

  • Understand the Service Cardiff Council provides to schools for Data Protection Advice

With the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation now embedded, it is essential that you and your School are fully compliant with the new data protection framework.

This event provides delegates with the opportunity to assess the impact of the Data Protection Act 2018 and the GDPR on education providers, since its implementation in May 2018.

Participants shall hear guidance from lead public sector experts on how to continue to ensure compliance, listen to insights from a number of best practice case studies from schools and engage in interactive workshops and panel sessions with experts to discuss the challenges posed by the data protection laws.

The event will also provide information on the contracted service available with Cardiff Council's Schools Information Governance Service, which includes providing the contracted role of the Data Protection Officer.
