As a care provider, you know  just how important it is to have access to good information about the people you support and your staff.

In order to store and share that information safely, you need to be confident that your paper and digital records are secure. 

DCHC, in partnership with the CCG, is offering free local support to care providers to evaluate and improve their data and cyber security and complete an annual, online self-assessment using the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT). The programme will help you to evaluate and improve your data and cyber security. This means you can reassure the people you support and their families, your staffcommissionersCQC regulatorslocal authorities, and health and care partners, that you are following good practice – and meeting legal and regulatory requirements.


If you have never started the DSPT, or maybe have done some work on it in previous years, come along to one of our introductory sessions to get started. We will cover what exactly the DSPT is, what the new changes are, how to register, and what your next steps are.

If you've already made a start to the DSPT and would like some support answering the questions, then we are running weekly workshops right up until the end of March. These are 2 hour sessions going through all of the questions in two of the four topic areas of the DSPT.

For these sessions you need to already have registered with the DSPToolkit and have your ICO registration in place.

You will only need to attend one of each of these sessions to complete the Toolkit.
