NHS Data Security and Protection Toolkit
Are you looking to contract with the NHS and have not yet explored the NHS Data Security and Protection (NHS DSP) toolkit? We work with companies from startups to enterprises to ensure that they can comply with and provide evidence of compliance to the NHS DSP.
We’ve successfully carried out multiple projects for clients to successfully go on to bid on NHS work.
The NHS DSP can be complex to businesses that have not embarked on a comprehensive security journey, especially startups. Following a number of engagements, we have put together a repeatable process for bringing businesses up to the standard with pace whilst delivering benefits and not just introducing processes.
We also ensure that along the way we obtain any certifications that our processes align you with, such as Cyber Essentials, Cyber Essentials Plus GDPR readiness, and IASME Governance.
We offer flexible services based on your budget and encourage you to get in touch with us for a custom quote that reflects your requirements.
What is the NHS Data Security and Protection Toolkit?
Organisations with access to NHS patient information and systems are required to use this toolkit to ensure that they are providing exceptional data security and that sensitive information is handled properly.
Who should complete the NHS DSP Toolkit?
The NHS DSP toolkit is mandatory for companies that want to access—or continue to access—sensitive NHS information. Regardless of whether you’re working directly under the NHS or a third-party organisation providing support services, the completion of the toolkits is essential and you must be compliant with all aspects.
Large corporations may need to complete the toolkit bi-annually to ensure that they’re compliant with all requirements.
Organisations that are required to comply with the NHS DSP toolkit are grouped as follows:
- NHS trust
- Public bodies, Commissioning Support Units (CSUs), and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)
- All other sectors
- GP practices
