Data security and protection toolkit

The DSPT is a free online self-assessment toolkit that helps vidence that your organisation manages personal data, both digitally and in paper form, in a safe and secure way. It helps demonstrate compliance with data protection legislation, answers two of the CQC Key Lines of Enquiry and provides reassurance to residents, clients, families and professionals that you manage data appropriately. Importantly, it provides opportunities: ongoing use of NHSmail and potential sharing of care records.
