DATA PROTECTION FOR SCHOOLS WORKSHOP
Schools process more sensitive personal data than most other kinds of organisations. With data on parents, teachers, and students, in particular, schools should be focusing their attention on complying with modern data protection laws, like the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) in South Africa. Failing to do so could cause serious harm, to the school or its various stakeholders.
