Data Security and Protection Toolkit

An online self-assessment tool that all organisations must use if they have access to NHS patient data and systems.

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit replaces the previous Information Governance toolkit from April 2018.

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit is an online self-assessment tool that enables organisations to measure and publish their performance against the National Data Guardian's ten data security standards.

All organisations that have access to NHS patient data and systems must use this toolkit to provide assurance that they are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.
