Securing Sensitive Personal Data

Pastoral staff and guardians in international schools take on overall accountability for parental controls and discipline of these pupils. They must also balance this with the need to become role models, nurturing their pupils and providing guidance, reassurance and advice when needed. Also, Schools are obligated to apply the same levels of protection to back office and faculty sensitive personal data. We ensure your protection meets the requirements.

The Importance of Standardisation

The concept of standardising data privacy in diverse legal landscapes is not about imposing uniformity. Rather, it’s about developing a dynamic, versatile framework that not only meets a range of legal standards but also upholds a robust level of data security. Such a uniform yet adaptable approach is crucial for international schools, where data traverses international boundaries as regularly as their students and staff.

We asked Robert to come in and do an audit for us in the lead up the introduction of PDPA in Thailand. He spent a week with us and was forensic in his approach. His report has left us a lot to think about and act upon. Compared to other firms offering the same thing, the price was very reasonable, and they have experience in the SE Asia market, so the advice is refreshingly specific rather than generic. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Formiti for data regulation services
