Here at the Education Data Hub we know that keeping control of your little robots can be hard, and sometimes keeping control of their data even harder.

We have developed services especially designed for the Early Years sector, to help make it simple to be data compliant and secure.

EYFS Data and Cyber Protection (Full)

Our Data and Cyber Protection (Full) service covers all aspects of data protection and cyber security, which not only protects the children in your care, but also the framework of your organisation and will ensure you stand out from other providers as safe and secure in the digital world.

Our Data Protection / Data Security Consultants will support you with guidance in data protection matters, cyber security, and in ensuring the children in your care are protected from online harms.

The service offers a full and comprehensive approach to compliance with GDPR/Data Protection Act 2018 requirements and relevant legislation relating to computer security, use and online safety.

The Full Service Includes:

Our telephone and email helpline ensures you are able to access our services promptly when you are in need of support.

You will receive a Data Protection Handbook and signposting to sector specific online safety and security resources along with a policy pack, including privacy notices and a documentation pack including advice on Subject Access Requests (SARs) and Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) along with templates for recording and reporting breaches.

EYFS Data and Cyber Protection (Lite)

EYFS Data Protection Support for In-house DPOs

Are you the Data Protection Officer (DPO) for your Nursery? Would you like the comfort of having our experts at the end of the phone to help with breaches, subject access requests, police requests, or simply to better understand your obligations?

Our Early Year’s team have expert knowledge of legislative requirements, professional experience, and understanding of your sector to support you, whatever your needs.

This service is aimed at in-house Data Protection Officers who would like to receive expert support and guidance with the more complicated aspects of compliance.

You will be provided with a self-assessment tool to complete, which will be reviewed by one of our experienced Data Protections Consultants,  who can offer help with addressing any concerns or gaps in provision and prioritising any required compliance activity.

You will also be invited to our training session covering the legislative requirements and primary roles and responsibilities of a DPO.

For those that need them, our policy and training suites, or individual elements of them, are available for an additional cost as well as remote or onsite staff training if required.
