GDPR Services and DPO Services

Cantium’s GDPR and DPO services utilise GDPRiS (GDPR in Schools). The GDPRiS platform is simple and cloud-based, designed specifically to support schools with complete management of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) across single or multiple establishments, like multi-academy trusts.

The GDPRiS platform helps Data Protection Officers (DPOs), and 3rd party data processors in their responsibilities, while reflecting existing processes and the way schools work and pro-actively prompting them to carry out actions needed to meet and exceed the GDPR. With the ability to easily demonstrate your compliance, react quickly to requests and breaches, and more, this simple, intuitive platform will help to simplify GDPR management in your school.

Cantium’s DPO as a Service (DPOaaS) is a practical and cost-effective solution to manage data protection in schools, trusts and academies when staff don’t have the data protection expertise and knowledge to fulfil their Data Protection Officer (DPO) obligations under the GDPR. Partnered with the GDPRiS platform, this service offers your school completely outsourced DPO services and GDPR management.
