In recent months, it has become apparent that Universities and Colleges are ‘under attack’ or at risk of data breaches. Both the GDPR and the corresponding UK Data Protection Act (2018) are just two examples of international data breach notification laws that have come into play in recent years.

This will affect how institutions will be able to communicate with students and prospective students – and with the fines being up to £20m Euros or 4% of global turnover, it’s certainly one not to ignore.
