Data Security Breach Prevention and Management Plan

Data Security Breach Prevention and Management Plan

Tor School is committed to maintaining the confidentiality of its information and ensuring that the details of the finances, operations and individuals within the school are only accessible by the appropriate individuals. It is therefore important to uphold high standards of security, take suitable precautions, and to have systems and procedures in place that support this.

The school recognises, however, that breaches in security can occur, particularly as the majority of information is stored online or on electronic devices which are increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attacks. This being the case, it is necessary to have a contingency plan containing procedures to minimise the potential negative impacts of any security breach, to alert the relevant authorities, and to take steps to help prevent a repeat occurrence.

For the purposes of this policy, the title of ‘data controller’ will be used in reference to the person(s) primarily responsible for the handling and protection of information and data within a school.
