The NHS 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.
Results summary: For the majority of topics, the IASME Governance standard meets or exceeds the requirements of the NHS Digital Data Security Standards. In some areas an action, process or tool that is specific to the NHS is referenced by the standard which does not map directly to the IASME Governance standard
