For all those UK Universities planning on being "nearly ready", "in an advanced state", "largely compliant" or anything short of GDPR compliant on 25 May 2018 - read on...
Ambiguity being a bugbear of mine, I checked with the ICO's office earlier this month. Case Reference Number: ENQ0698938
Unfortunately there is no ‘grace’ period provided within the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and therefore Universities will have to ensure they are compliant with their obligations under the Regulations on 25 May 2018.
We are now getting approached regularly by UK Universities who need to understand how to implement GDPR controls to cover their student recruitment activities.
We provide the UK's only CMA and GDPR fully compliant student recruitment platform - www.student-crm.co.uk. Our clients automatically benefit from this upgrade, as it is just one of the 25 upgrades we roll out every year.
We are happy to talk you through how we can help you to achieve CMA and GDPR compliance with robust controls built-in.
