Education Data Security

GDPReady will ensure your education faculty remains GDPR compliant.

GDPReady is a simple assessment framework that is designed to help you to track your organisation’s compliance to the requirements of GDPR

We’re on a mission to support organisations in the education sector to not only become GDPR compliant, but to be aware of their handling of information security and data. Security standards are rising and the protection of personal information is pivotal.

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has replaced all data protection legislations in EU member states. This includes the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). It’s a legal obligation that must be met, whether you’re in England, Wales or Scotland.

How GDPReady will help you:

  • Regular, high-level evaluations on whether GDPR requirements are being implemented in your faculty.
  • Assessments allow you to update progress at any time.
  • Calculates a percentage rating. This allows senior management and stakeholders to see visible progress of your GDPR process.
  • Clear and transparent communication of your progress to customers and other interested parties.
  • Great for evaluating your GDPR readiness.
Total Compliance - GDPR Implementation
GDPR Compliance Deadline Date

The deadline has passed!

The security measures of GDPR took effect on May 25th 2018. The regulation provides a comprehensive framework for the management and processing of personal data across the 28 countries of the European Union.

Following Brexit, the recently announced UK Data Protection Bill will be closed, aligned to the requirements of GDPR.

GDPR will see new and amended data protection requirements, which all organisations across a wide range of industries will need to meet. If you manage, store and share data, you must comply.

For educational institutions using GDPReady, you will benefit from the clear progress tracker; ensuring that each expectation is being properly implemented and signed off.

The GDPR process will involve a number of your staff. It could include your legal, commercial, technical, HR, and compliance colleagues. Having our central repository for progress is hugely beneficial.


“GDPReady” provides a comprehensive set of assessment questions, grouped into 26 different categories. Once it is completed, it will provide:

  • Real-time visibility of your GDPR progress. This will be presented with a percentage of total compliance
  • A clear and simple breakdown of the tasks that need addressing
  • An iterative approach, allowing for incremental progress to be easily recorded
  • Encouragement for all required personnel to complete the GDPR tasks assigned to them
  • A convenient method to extract meaningful measurement for senior management
  • An approach for assessing your GDPR readiness level
