Keep your Data Security and Protection Toolkit up to date: Deadline for 2021/22 is 30 June 2022

Keep your Data Security and Protection Toolkit up to date: Deadline for 2021/22 is 30 June 2022

One of the lessons we have learned from the Covid pandemic, is that things can change very rapidly.

Ways of working and communicating with colleagues, families and people using care services have transformed, with increasing numbers of us using digital technology to keep in touch and share information.

And of course that brings many benefits. But are you confident that your care services’ policies, procedures and training have kept up with your changes in practice?

You can use the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) to check and improve your current data and cyber security arrangements.

Because things change so much in the data and tech world, care providers need to complete the DSPT at least once a year. If you don’t, your DSPT is not valid and cannot be used as evidence of the standard that you reach.

The deadline for DSPT submissions for 2021/22 is 30 June. So time is ticking.

If you’ve never used the DSPT before, or you need to review and republish, start now. Our team on the Better Security, Better Care programme provides a range of support. So get some help and get your DSPT up to date.
