The Data Security Centre provides template policies and good practice guidance for health and care organisations, to make sure data and systems are protected. We provide example policies, good practice guidance to feed into policy development and practice, and simple user reference guides on a range of data and cyber security topics for health and care. The guidance was designed for the NHS and can be used by any health and care organisation, or associated organisations that work with health and care data or systems.
You can view by topic below, or view all cyber and data security user guides, cyber and data security good practice guides or cyber and data security example policies. For additional guidance on a range of topics, please refer to the National Cyber Security Centre website.
