Data Protection Officer
Managing the SCR and Safeguarding Data
Although often thought of in their own context, data protection and safeguarding are two extremely important areas in school which frequently overlap each other.
In 2021, 36% of primary schools and 58% of secondary schools experienced a data breach or attack, which in turn could compromise sensitive safeguarding data. - *Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021
With attacks on the rise it is increasingly important for schools to remain diligent.
During the session we will be looking at:
- What needs to be kept on the single central record and provide tips to improve records management.
- The importance of recording safeguarding data accurately.
- The overriding principles in sharing safeguarding data with other individuals/agencies.
