Data Security & Protection Toolkit

Data Security & Protection Toolkit (DSPT) 

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit is an online self-assessment tool that allows organisations to measure their performance against the National Data Guardian’s 10 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.

If you have attended the Introduction to DSPT (and Data Protection in General) webinar you will need to decide what steps you need to take. This year’s DSPT publishing deadline is March 2022. To know what needs to be followed to increase your chances of success, see the DSPT Checklist.
