Security

A core element of safeguarding a child is the safeguarding of their data - keeping their information confidential. Schools know this and they must demand absolute data security from their service providers. We ensure that we meet and exceed the national and international information security standards.

As more details are released of how the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), due to come into force in May 2018, apply to schools, Safeguarding Monitor will immediately ensure that it, and the schools it supports, complies.
