The Data Security & Protection Toolkit (DSPT) is a free, online annual self-assessment for social care and health organisations.
The toolkit can support care providers to ensure the information they hold about people is being managed safely and securely, and to safeguard against the risks of a data breach or cyberattack.
All CQC registered providers should complete the toolkit. Services provided under an NHS contract must have an up-to-date DSPT. Completing the toolkit involves answering a series of questions online.
Skills for Care have a range of support on offer to help you complete the toolkit:
- Online workshops
- In-person workshops
- 1:1 video calls
- 1:1 in-person support
