Education and GDPR

Despite high levels of awareness regarding the incoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) only 22 per cent of schools, colleges and universities out of 500 surveyed felt their data protection policies were compliant.

Furthermore, 70 per cent said that if they fell foul to a data breach, they wouldn’t be able to show that the correct procedures were in place.

These findings are the result of a survey conducted by NW Security Group, a leading provider of security systems, consultancy and training services.

The research asked head teachers, governors, IT, security and facility managers in the North West to determine their awareness levels of, and adherence to, the upcoming GDPR.
