“People’s confidential data should be treated with the same respect as their care." Dame Fiona Caldicott, July 2016

“The leadership of every organisation should demonstrate clear ownership and responsibility for data security, just as it does for clinical and financial management and accountability…. We’ll amend our assessment framework and inspection approach to include assurance that appropriate validation against the new data security standards have been carried out, and make sure inspectors are appropriately trained.” Care Quality Commission 2016

The National Information Governance Summit 2017 focuses on monitoring adherence to the 10 National Standards for Data Security which were proposed by the National Data Guardian, Dame Fiona Caldicott in July 2016. Through national updates, extended in-depth sessions and practical case studies the conference will provide you with a guide to ensuring compliance with the new standards in practice.
