Completing One Headquarters Assessment: If you meet the criteria to complete one Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) submission to cover all your branches, you should complete a Headquarters Assessment. To do this, you will first need to register on the DSPT with an HQ ODS Code.

If you have multiple HQ codes, choose one HQ code for your organisation, complete the DSPT and publish using the advice below. Then contact the DSPT team and ask for the publication to be copied onto your other branches by including a list of the ODS codes for each branch, including the one you have completed your submission against. This should take 10 working days.

The pages below have information on how to publish your submission for the first time and what to do every time you publish after that.
