Why Schools Need More Support Now Than Ever Before!


Recent changes to global data protection have created the need for school leaders, boards and governors to be held accountable for how data and information is managed within their organisation. These laws have brought together three areas:

Governance & Accountability  

Data Privacy & Protection 

Information & Cyber Security


Over the past 10 years 9ine have become experts in each of these areas delivering market leading consultancy services and solving challenging problems. We have invested in an in-house team of experts whilst maintaining a presence working and managing large scale IT systems in schools on a day by day basis. This combination of human experience and expertise makes 9ine the 'go to' team who understand what information schools process, through what systems, where the problems are and how to solve them.
