Download our model data breach procedure

We've created a model data breach procedure based on guidance on personal data breaches from the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). 

This model document is not meant as a guide for writing or updating your school's procedure, since that's your school leaders' job. Instead, use it to give you a sense of what a good procedure looks like. 

Personal data breach procedure

Approved by Forbes Solicitors, all of our model documents take account of relevant requirements and good practice. 

This document can also be found as an appendix to our model data protection policy.
