GDPRiS joins forces with Data Protection Education

GDPRiS and Data Protection Education (DPE) join forces to provide enhanced data protection services to schools

GDPR in Schools Limited, the UK’s leading provider of data protection monitoring and management software to schools, and Data Protection Education Ltd, a leading provider of data protection officer services to the education sector, has announced a closer working relationship.

This new partnership brings together a depth of experience and understanding of data protection in education. Schools will have greater peace of mind knowing that the information, guidance and support available to them will ensure their compliance with the GDPR.

Talking about DPE’s contribution, James England, Director of Data Protection Education, commented “We are proud to be working more closely with GDPRiS to help schools across the country continue to meet and exceed the requirements of the GDPR. We passionately believe that together we will strengthen existing good practices in data protection by enhancing already sound procedures and methods”.

Almost 3,000 schools trust GDPRiS to navigate their journey to compliance. The software’s group management feature enables schools to use any DPO service they choose and give them access to real-time information and powerful reporting on their compliance status. The software immediately notifies the schools’ DPO of breaches, streamlines collaboration in responding to SARs and FOIs with a complete history to demonstrate compliance and much more.

Lawrence Royston, co-CEO of GDPR in Schools said “This formally brings together two organisations dedicated to helping schools achieve compliance. The partnership has many benefits including having access to shared resources and expertise. The partnership recognises the importance of building on this collaborative approach that strengthens both organisations and enables us to better help schools to ensure they meet the requirements of data protection regulation.”
