Data Protection Service

Ensuring compliance in a data-driven world

Individuals have a right to privacy and to have their data treated in a way they would reasonably expect. Therefore, it is imperative that organisations understand the data they hold, protect and process to comply with data protection legislation. Good practices in managing data can increase both confidence and trust in an organisation and minimise risks for the organisation and individuals.

Ensuring compliance with data protection legislation is an ongoing process and is not a ‘one-off’ project. It’s about creating a culture of compliance which sits at the heart of your organisation. The practical realities of creating and implementing data protection best practice can seem overwhelming and can be difficult to keep up to date in a rapidly changing world.


The Education Space has a skilled and experienced Data Compliance team, dedicated to working with the education sector. Our team supports over 70 organisations and has trained in excess of 1000 education professionals in the past 12 months.

The Education Space provides a DPO service for schools, taking away the burden or any potential conflict of interest when appointing internally. The service includes regular risk-rated compliance checks, access to an advice and guidance helpline, document toolkits and access to forums for school to meet and keep abreast of education sector-specific news.
