How to Complete Standards Met.

We’ve written a guide on how to complete Standards Met. It has information on how to register for the Data Security and Protection Toolkit. It also explains what you need to do for each evidence item.

The guide is available at the bottom of this page.

We also have video guides with advice on how to complete each question.


We have written template policies and guidance materials to help you complete the Data Security and Protection Toolkit. All of these are free to use and completely editable.


We ran a series of webinars in November and December 2020. These cover how to complete the Data Security and Protection Toolkit, including how to register.

We have uploaded the recordings of the webinars.

Changes to the Toolkit

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit was updated for the 2020/21 financial year. If you have previously completed Standards Met and want to know what has changed you can view the recording of our webinar below.
