“I find the DPO networking forum extremely useful. Coming from a small federation of rural schools, having the opportunity to speak to and meet with other DPOs and share experience and practices is giving me more confidence in my DPO role. The advice has been very helpful and communicated in a way that is easy to understand. Annette is extremely approachable and any questions are answered in a supporting and encouraging manner”
Data Protection Officer, North Devon

 

“I found the networking forum with Annette invaluable. Annette provides first class information which is always up-to-date and she is always willing to discuss any concerns without hesitation. It’s very worthwhile discussing GDPR issues with other DPOs in my local area”
Data Protection Officer, Devon Primary School

“We are very happy to recommend the service provided by Amber Badley of Firebird, who are working with Babcock LDP to help schools wade through the new GDPR. We decided as a school that we would sign up for the full service. It was a well-made decision. Amber has made the process less complicated, provided documents, advice and reassurance. We have monthly meetings and she is there if we have any questions, which is quite often, as this is new to all of us. This is quite a cost to a school, especially with reduced budgets, but it’s worth it for peace of mind and the back up in case of a breach”
Primary School, East Devon

“The GDPR service we have received from Babcock LDP has been extremely comprehensive. The training provided to all our staff was excellent and vital in raising their awareness of the new legislation. Amber has provided excellent support to the College and assisted us in becoming ready for the introduction of GDPR”
Devon Secondary Head teacher
