Educational Establishments share personal data with other external organisations (for example, in relation to recruitment, child protection, and collaborating with others providing activities or services for pupils)
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) produced comprehensive guidance for organisations on how to share data lawfully, while protecting people’s personal information.
This Masterclass covers the legal requirements for agreements with those organisations if they act in the capacity of a processor, and the recommendations in the ICO’s statutory Code of Practice on Data Sharing. It explores ways to evidence compliance with the UK GDPR requirements, using practical tools such as data sharing request forms and data sharing agreements, in order to ensure appropriate security and help protect against complaint and data breaches.
Areas covered include:
- Overview of main changes introduced by the Data Sharing Code of Practice, and its guidance on data sharing in an urgent situation or an emergency
- Advice on content of data sharing agreements
- Establishing processes and maintaining records for data sharing to comply with the UK GDPR accountability requirements
