Guidance: Cloud software services: how schools should protect data
Cloud (educational apps) software services and the Data Protection Act.
Departmental advice for local authorities, school leaders, school staff and governing bodies.
This is an advice and information document issued by the Department for Education. The advice is non-statutory, and has been produced to help recipients understand some of the key principles and their obligations and duties in relation to the Data Protection Act 1998 (the DPA), particularly when considering moving some or all of their software services to internet-based “cloud” service provision.
This advice is underpinned by a supplier self-certification scheme enabling providers to confirm their compliance with the key principles and requirements of the DPA, to provide useful additional advice and to suggest how cloud software solutions can best be configured by a school.
