IT Governance launches DPO as a service for schools


IT Governance, the leading provider of IT compliance and risk management, is adapting its industry standard solutions to meet the needs of the education sector as it launches its Data Protection Officer (DPO) service for schools.

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the horizon, the DPO service is a practical and cost-effective solution for schools wanting to outsource this critical role. The service is the first in IT Governance’s portfolio of products and services designed to support the education sector in 2018.

In conjunction with this announcement, IT Governance will be exhibiting at the ASCL Conference for Business Leaders 2018 this week (17 May) in Nottingham. This flagship event provides all the essential information on key topics for the education sector, including the GDPR.

Claire Ashton, IT Governance’s sector marketing manager for education, has more than 20 years of working experience in this sector and will attend next week’s event. She said: “The ASCL Conference for Business Leaders is the perfect place for IT Governance to demonstrate how we can support schools with their GDPR compliance and more. We are looking forward to speaking with attendees and discussing what we can offer, especially in the form of our DPO service for schools.”

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance said: “Years of strapped budgets and competing priorities have left the education sector vulnerable to cyber attacks. Our announcement will remedy the needs of the education sector within their tight budgets and limited resources.”

In conjunction with the conference theme of agile leadership, IT Governance will be running a competition for delegates to win a set of books on this very subject as well as a 10% discount on all ITGP books ordered online using the code ASCL18. Head to stand no. 12 for a chance to win.
