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.

Participation is mandatory for all organisations that process NHS patient data in order to ensure robust data security and data privacy standards are in place across the healthcare sector. The Data Security and Protection Toolkit replaced the existing Information Governance Toolkit in April 2018.

The DSP Toolkit builds on the general principle that organisations should maintain the security of personal information and support the key requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This whitepaper will show how BeyondTrust solutions align wit the requirements and standards of the toolkit.
