Better Security, Better Care: local support, webinars and films
28 Apr, 2021
Adult social care providers across England are invited to access local as well as national support to improve their data protection and cyber security.
As part of the Better Security, Better Care programme, 29 local support partners across the country are helping care providers to ensure they are storing and sharing paper and digital records safely. Most of the support partners are local care associations, though in some areas, support is led by local councils or the NHS.
The programme supports providers to use the self-assessment tool – the Data Security and Protection Toolkit – which in turn enables many of the other data and cyber security initiatives across the care sector. For example, care providers who reach Standards Met on the Toolkit can apply to access NHS systems such as shared records.
Data and cyber programme leads, social care commissioners, inspectors, data system suppliers and policymakers are also invited to a webinar on how Better Security, Better Care supports them, and how works alongside related data and cyber initiatives.
And, in a new series of short films, social care leaders and practitioners explain why data and cyber security matters, and how the Better Security, Better Care programme improves skills and care.
Care providers can also book to attend webinars on How to register for the DSPT
