A guide to GDPR for schools

With the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation coming into effect on May 25, understand how schools like yours can take the right steps towards compliance with this free eBook – and other useful resources.

Your school on a journey

Your school is on a journey with lots of ‘data subjects’. They’re pupils, teachers, cleaners, government persons, and more. Every new school year, you welcome aboard lots of new data subjects – collecting names, addresses, dates of birth, and other important information in the process.

During that school year, you’ll transfer pieces of their data to, for example, an insurance firm, the authorities, or an alumni organisation. In that time, people will leave. Many will stay. And when the next school year arrives, new people will join. The journey starts over.

Towards GDPR compliance

The GDPR creates a uniform European legal framework in which European data subjects connected to your school have several rights they can exercise as of May 25th. Are you aware of them?

Download the GDPR Guide for Education Institutions eBook for free today. You’ll discover guidelines to best protect personal data, maintain accountability for your processes, and increase your GDPR compliancy.
