Embedding Data Security & Protection

Shropshire Partners in Care has secured funding from Digital Social Care and the Local Government Association which will allow us to offer local providers free support to complete the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) and also to support with their Cyber Security.

We would like to support two group of providers in this project

  • those who have achieved entry level to work towards standards met
  • those who haven’t yet started the process (maybe you registered for the toolkit but haven’t got any further?)

Dates have been agreed for the two groups – further details can be found here.

To support with Cyber Security we will be running and event on 06 February at Shrewsbury Football Club, with presentations from local specialists providing information and guidance on the key safety measures care providers should be putting in place to protect their organisation from cyber/online attack.

Speakers Include:

  • Chris Pallett, Managing Director, Bespoke Computing
  • Andy Carpendale, Infastructure Security Specialist, Telford & Wrekin Council
  • Fiona Richardson, Assistant Director, Institute of Public Care, Oxford Brookes University
