Data security in schools at The Education People Show

How much is enough? The perception vs reality of data protection, data breaches and preserving your reputation.

Following the introduction of the GDPR, many schools are concerned about the correct procedures to take as well as their reputational risk should a breach occur.

Head of Employment Catherine Daw will be speaking at this year's Education People Show on just how far schools need to go to protect the data they manage.
