A general awareness regarding General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) requirements for data protection across the EU is a something Harare International School (HIS) is working on. At HIS we have been working with Faria Systems, the provider of Open Apply, our school's admissions portal and Managebac, our schools attendance, curriculum and reporting system to ensure that the privacy and security of your personal data is accurate and within the confines of the new GDPR Regulations which are effective from May 25, 2018.
Faria Systems have been committed to data privacy and security for over 10 years, and, as one of the world's only learning platforms with ISO 27001 : 2013 Information Security Certification are already prepared for the upcoming GDPR changes with a strong set of organizational and technical security measures.
HIS has already begun the process of analyzing the way we process, handle, store and share our community data. This will remain an ongoing process to ensure our policies are in line with local data laws as well as those of the GDPR. Protecting data of students, parents, faculty and staff, both past and present is of paramount importance to the school.
