9ine Case Study
Zurich International School

Author: Mark Dilworth, Director of Education Technology

One of the key challenges with data protection readiness is knowing where to start. 9ine offers Data Protection and Cybersecurity audits through their subscription service and these audits have been invaluable helping Zurich International School to prioritise how they focus their time and resources.ZIS Website Privacy Policy

Having access to the compliance toolkit and procedure templates has saved the school hours of work and enabled them to develop stronger training opportunities for faculty and staff. After supporting ZIS with a Data Protection Readiness Assessment in August 2017, 9ine's subscription service, DPO Essentials, has provided the school with ongoing guidance and tools for the ZIS in-house team to build compliance themselves.

Through the data protection expertise provided by our service desk, we have supported ZIS with their breach management and information rights issues and concerns as they occur. Since using 9ine's support to develop their appropriate governance structures, 9ine has audited and evaluated the effectiveness of these structures delivering critical and crucial assessments to ZIS.

The onsite audit of their progress not only demonstrates their level of compliance to the Board but also engages stakeholders across the school in the review helping them to understand the positive impact of their efforts. 9ine’s onsite audit helped to assess ZIS’ compliance across: personal data governance, levels of staff training and awareness, accountability to the regulations, and information rights and breach management.
