GDPR for Schools – UtopiaR is ensuring your compliance with GDPR
UtopiaR is here to help you securely manage all personal data relating to students and staff at any educational institute.
On the 25th of May 2018, the Data Protection Act (DPA) was replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means the way in which your school, college or university manages its students’ and staffs’ data will change.

There are many aspects to consider for educational institutes across the UK. It may be complicated, but that’s where UtopiaR can help you.
It’s an effective school GDPR auditing tool that can coincide with your school data protection for 2018 and beyond!
