Huge boost for education sector as IT Governance acquires GDPR compliance tool


As part of its longer-term investment in supporting the UK education sector with its GDPR compliance obligations, IT Governance Ltd (the largest operational subsidiary of AIM-listed GRC International Group plc) has acquired from Cambridge company Wonde Ltd.
This announcement sees IT Governance acquire a tool that has already helped hundreds of schools to manage and evidence their journey to GDPR compliance. Relevant books, e-learning and other services will be made available across the website during August.
Key features of the easy-to-use platform include supplier management and compliance tracking; targeted staff training and a training log; subject access request and data breach management and recording; key policy and data mapping templates; and risk assessment. All are coordinated through automated tasks and reminders.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “We understand that schools want easy-to-use and sector-specific tools and this software makes their journey to GDPR compliance straightforward. We’re really impressed with how easy the tool is to use and how popular it is with schools.”
IT Governance, a preferred supplier with the Association of School and College Leaders, last month announced a new partnership with the UK’s number one reporting tool for school heads, The Headteacher’s Report, to create the GDPR Report, which helps schools audit their GDPR compliance.
