DPO Networking Forum (online)

{{ category }}
The GDPR introduced a duty for schools to appoint a data protection officer (DPO) as they are defined as public authorities.  DPOs help schools to monitor compliance to data protection legislation whilst informing and advising on data protection obligations.  Under data protection legislation, schools must ensure their DPO is an expert in this field, therefore your school is accountable when it comes to keeping your  DPO informed.  Our DPO Networking Forums will help you to achieve this.
Devon County Council's DPO Networking Forum is an online event held termly where DPOs from subscribing and non-subscribing schools meet to discuss matters related to data protection in schools.  It's an opportunity for DPOs to keep informed, stay up-to-date with any changes in data protection legislation and share ideas with other DPOs in the same sector.
