Digital Security Guide and Animation

Digital Security Guide and Animation

Employers of personal assistants (individual employers) have a legal obligation to store information about their staff safely and securely, regardless of whether the information is digital or paper based. Individual employers are classed as ‘Data Controllers’ and so under new data protection laws may need to be registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office by taking a self assessment online.

Disability Sheffield have created a short animation on YouTube , which outlines this obligation along with a Digital Security Guide to ensure that as an employer, you are following the necessary policies and procedures that are in place for safe storage of data and usage of all devices within the home.

As a result of developing these resources through our work with the Individual Employer and PA group, Disability Sheffield is proud to announce that we have been named as a 2018 Innovator by Skills for Care . We are one of ten social care projects nationally which are bringing to life new ideas for different audiences. We were chosen because we meet priority four ‘developing the skills and knowledge of the workforce in information sharing and cyber security to embed digital working’. Meet the Innovators:Disability Sheffield CIL .

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
