Schools hold large amounts of confidential data on their pupils, and have a regular requirement to share information with external organisations. Ensuring that keeping this information confidential is very important for schools, as breaches of confidentiality can cause harm, distress or inconvenience to the victims and even damage the school’s market reputation. Schools in the UK must comply with local and EU Data Protection Law issued by the ICO (Information Commissioners Office).
The guidelines presented by the ICO makes it very clear that all schools must take adequate measures to maintain privacy of sensitive data sent via emails. Schools must follow the set Data Protection procedures when they transfer or exchange personal data via emails within the school, with other schools and third parties. If schools fail to follow these guidelines and don’t implement adequate measures to keep sensitive data well-protected from cyber criminals and possibility of data breaches, then the Information Commissioners Office can fine or even ‘name and shame’ such schools.
