Data Security Summit - 28th-29th March


Developing a culture of data privacy, Cyber security and achieving maintained compliance with international and data protection law


Training Location: 
Kohinoor Elite Hotel, Mumbai, India

Our two-day Data Security Summit, in collaboration with the American School of Bombay, will provide professional development for school staff in the areas of data protection and cyber security. The training is designed for all levels of school leadership including Governors, Principals/Deputies, Business Managers, Data Managers, DPOs, Compliance and IT Managers and Network Security staff. Using games based learning, participants will be able to put aside any concerns about their own technical knowledge, with activities designed for both the most technical and least technical individuals. The workshop is a must for anyone responsible for data protection or cyber security in your school.

Training Approach

Our training is designed so school leaders can take their learnings and apply them back at school in a structured and measurable way. This means attendance and the consequential learnings have a great return on investment. We do this through adopting the following principles:

1. Governance - we link preparatory thinking, participation and organisational progression through the learning outputs

2. Learning through context - where the content of the training gives consideration to daily experiences from school life, with practical examples enabling delegates to understand and be able to apply lessons learnt from others schools

3. Learning through play - where learning is embedded through interactive games, giving the opportunity for debate and the distilling of knowledge into practice
