Data Security and Protection Toolkit
CyberCrowd are experienced specialists in helping various organisations complete the self-assessment process to fulfil the NHS’s Data Security and Protection Toolkit requirements (DSPT).
The Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) is a self-assessment tool that allows businesses to compare their results against the ten data security guidelines set out by the National Data Guardian. Any organisation that has access to NHS patient records or NHS mail must complete the DSPT in order to show an appropriate degree of compliance.
The main goal of the DSPT is that organisations should demonstrate that they can be trusted with the confidentiality and security of personal information. It also supports organisations to meet the requirements of new legislation including the likes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Network and Information Systems (NIS) Directive.
CyberCrowd is able to assist an organisation with the DSPT accreditation by:
- Identifying any gaps in their organisational landscape
- Providing guidance on how to overcome such gaps
- Assessing the technical controls currently deployed
- Providing policies, processes and registration required by the DSPT framework
The DSPT standard is renewed annually and it is essential that all organisations renew the standard to ensure they maintain access to NHS systems and digital information.
