Today saw the announcement that the Surveillance Camera Commissioner, Tony Porter, and the Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, have published a revised memorandum of understanding.
The MOU sets out the roles and working requirements of the two independent regulators and comes ahead of the important changes to data protection regulations in May next year.
Tony Porter commented
Given the way that surveillance cameras can now collect and manipulate personal data, it’s extremely important that we have a framework in place to bolster our excellent working relationship. With the changes in data protection legislation coming in next year, this is something that is very much in the public interest.
As organisations prepare for GDPR compliance, the depth and breadth of data protection considerations are hitting home. GDPR includes the requirement to carry out a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for CCTV installation and to have policies in place for its management and operation.
Relieving the burden of this, and many other GDPR requirements is the ISMS.online software. Our GDPR Standalone Solution comes with up to 77% of the ICO required policies, ready for you to Adopt, Adapt and Add to.
Included within an ISO 27001 accredited platform, users will also benefit from a PIA framework and tools to manage risk, security incidents and events, audits and reviews, subject access requests, and business_continuity”>business continuity planning. There really is no easier and faster way to prepare for and manage GDPR compliance.
