The following services and resources are available free of charge through the partnership:

Accreditation self-assessment for data privacy and cyber security.

Linking together the CIS International Accreditation Protocol, domains and criteria, we have created a Self-Assessment Tool for schools to use in evaluating their progress against the protocol for each of the preparatory evaluation, team evaluation and future aspiration stages.

Free services and resources  you  get through the partnership

By completing the self-assessment, you will:

  • Determine the steps that need to be taken to meet and exceed the accreditation standards related to data protection, cyber security and technology for managing safeguarding / child protection at each phase.
  • Be provided with a unique assessment framework for your school to evaluate itself against the revised protocol standards and criteria for each of the preparatory evaluation, team evaluation and future aspiration stages.
  • Gain access to tools and resources to aid your alignment with accreditation standards and review the latest research statistics on data protection compliance for international schools.
  • Receive direct support from one of 9ine's consultancy team to help answer any questions or concerns.

“I first met Mark Orchison at an ISBA Conference about 6 years ago and his knowledge of independent schools and technology stuck with me. Several years later when we wished to evaluate where we were with IT staffing, infrastructure and planning, he seemed an obvious person to turn to”

“They felt like an extension of our IT support team for the time they were with us and were never judgemental on the approach we take with our systems and security. I’d have no concerns about recommending them (and using their services) again in the future.”
