Connect-Up Support Services GDPR Preperations.

The upcoming changes to the data privacy law are very extensive and daunting to schools.  Connect-Up has continued its approach of producing informed briefings, toolkit focused training courses and hands-on practical workshops, in order to provide the skills your school will need to meet these new complicated and legal requirements from May 2018.

Part of the process that all schools should be doing is to check that companies who process data on your behalf are making the same preparation efforts for the new law that you in school are making.  The majority of companies are simply adding details to their websites (Connect-up are doing this as well) but this requires you to actively search for these.  Connect-Up is trying to make to process simpler by contacting you directly with our standard processor letter which explains the steps we take when processing any from you in a legal and secure manner.  Please click the link below for a copy of our letter.

Don’t forget that the General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on the 25th of May and that we offer a wide range of training and consultancy on data protection to our schools including

All Staff Briefings

SLT Briefings

Data Lead / Chief Privacy Officer Training

Gatekeepers Training

Progress Check / GAP Analysis Consultancy

If you would like to request further information or discuss your school’s data compliance, please feel free to contact me.

Support Services News Update

You may already be aware that David Barber our Account Manager of six years left our organisation at the end of August 2013, to take up a new opportunity.

We are pleased to announce that we have filled the vacant position left by our ex-employee. Andy Streets our new Sales manager will be contacting you in the near future to introduce himself.

We are very disappointed to hear that David has been in touch with a number of schools subsequently, and supplying inaccurate and defamatory information regarding our organisations future plans and aspirations.

With news of this, we wish to provide you with assurance that Connect Up Support Services continues to go from strength to strength. As ever we remain fully committed to support schools for the future, in the knowledge that we will continue to listen and understand school needs to ensure we deliver a first class service to all our customers.

We look forward to continuing to work with you, and would like to thank you for your continued support.

If you have any queries in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact me on 0113 2105010 or via email @:- markd@connect-up.co.uk
