What is the NHS Digital Data Security Centre?

The role of the NHS Digital Data Security Centre is to provide the health and care system with a trusted central point for all matters related to data, cyber and information security.

It provides health and care organisations with a range of support services designed to enhance their preparedness for data risks and ability to appropriately remediate against such incidents when they do occur.

Why do I need to do data security awareness training?

This data security awareness training will help you to be alert of known and common data security risks as well as your responsibilities when handling information in health and care.

Raising the awareness of health and care users is the first part of the approach NHS Digital is taking to support the findings and standards set out in the National Data Guardian’s Review – Data Security, Consent and Opt Outs.

This training aims to raise the awareness of staff in health and care organisations to potential situations involving data and information security. The Data Security Centre supports the government Personalised Health and Care 2020 framework to build and sustain public trust, by educating large numbers of staff on securing data, systems and services.
