If you’re thinking about installing CCTV or similar technology, whether you’re recording footage or just live-streaming, you’ll need to think about data protection too. People care about how you treat their personal information and that includes footage of them captured by your CCTV.
One of the key steps in identifying risks to your data subjects, is carrying out a CCTV Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA). Principle 2 of the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice states the use of a surveillance camera system must take into account its effect on individuals and their privacy.
However, we understand that carrying out a DPIA may require you to have extensive knowledge of data protection laws, the DPIA will determine whether your deployment is lawful, and will also be a record of how you have considered and addressed any risks or wider concerns about your project. Developing DPIA’s can be time consuming, and require specific expertise. DPAS can alleviate that burden by taking on the end-to-end creation of DPIA’s and any relevant documentation.
Our team of in-house experts can gather information, complete DPIA’s, analyse risk, and provide you with an action plan of any recommendations or remedial advice. Services start from as little as £375.
