NHS Data Security & Protection Toolkit

Protecting sensitive patient information.

What is NHS Data Security and Protection Toolkit?

All organisations that have access to NHS patient data and systems must use the NHS toolkit to provide assurance that they are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.

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.

The ten Data Standards are an overarching framework; each standard is broken down into evidence items called assertions which cover the detail required to meet each standard. They cover more than technology, encompassing people and process.

NHS Digital is developing standards and expectations of suppliers. We can enable your organisation adopt the standards easily and quickly, and stay up to date with the NHS.
