Data Protection Requirements - Handling identifiable personal data

All staff have a legal requirement to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations in relation to the storing and otherwise handling of personal data.

The Somerset Children and Young Peoples Directorate have produced some guidance for staff which can be found using the links below :-

Important note regarding mobile devices and handheld devices
If you have had stolen or lost a handheld device (ie a Smartphone) which has been configured to access the school email service, amongst any other measures you may take, you need urgently to notify the school ICT section on 01749 836237 to arrange to have the email account password reset.

All mobile/portable data devices which access or hold personal identifiable data, must be configured with an adequate level of security to protect them from unauthorised access.
Personal information is only to be stored using suitable data encryption technology.
