Insight was formed in July 2016 by Steve Cullen to provide many of the services schools have wanted to receive but were no longer able to obtain from their local authority, and converted to limited company status in October 2018. Steve has over 25 years experience of working in the field of Data Protection and he has considerable knowledge of other key Information Governance disciplines including Freedom of Information, Information Security, Records Management, Business Continuity and Emergency Planning. He also has extensive experience of Management Services disciplines such as ergonomics, business process redesign, change management and workplace design. Having undertaken private contract work in the health, social care, education and charity sectors throughout his career his experience is by no means limited to the school environment.
To date he has worked with almost 100 schools, academies and trusts to prepare for GDPR compliance, and offers a subscription service that includes advice and guidance, a documentation kit and an Information Governance health check. He also provides "hands on" training for staff, centred on the issues that are most likely to lead to data breaches in a school environment. Steve also delivers Birmingham City Council's Schools HR service's GDPR training support for their clients.
