9ine's self-assessment is a useful resource that puts both the requirements for best practice data protection and CIS accreditation into actions, providing insight towards other critical areas / departments where data protection has an impact and a mechanism to get the IT department and child protection department working together.
Data protection law is constantly evolving to be continually relevant as technology, working practice and challenges to the privacy rights of natural persons develops over time. This means that whilst accreditation protocol covering the complex area of data protection may currently be sufficient, over time this may need to adapt and change. The CIS Special Interest Group (SIG) will be formed with two layers - a Core Group and Regional Representatives.
The Core Group will meet regularly to direct the development and delivery of resources for CIS-Accredited schools. The Regional Representatives will be regionally located and will provide in-country updates on the current concerns, needs and developments. This group will be supported by 9ine, whose in-house team will advise and guide as required. Any CIS-Accredited may apply to join the SIG. You can do so by selecting the relevant option when registering for the self-assessment.
