It comprises of the Buyers Toolkit; the Passport to Compliance; the Self-assessment Tool and the surveillance cameras specific Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA).
Tony Porter said:
I have a statutory remit to encourage compliance with the surveillance camera code of practice and to provide advice about it. To do this, I have worked with a range of organisations to develop various guidance notes, tools and templates which are now available on my website.
These tools will help your organisation comply with the code and its 12 guiding principles, which if followed, will ensure that surveillance camera systems are only operated proportionately, transparently and effectively.
I am grateful to Alastair Thomas, BSIA and the ICO for all their efforts in developing this toolbox.
Derek Maltby Managing Director of Global MSC Security said:
