Improving Cyber Security, and the DSP Toolkit
(1 day course or day 3 of 3 day course)


A 1-day course to boost your understanding of good cyber security practice and how it shapes the DSP Toolkit. The course provides an overview of why good cyber security plays an increasing role in healthcare delivery, what good security looks like and how good security is achieved.

Designed as a foundation course, it provides a gentle introduction to cyber-security and information security practices. The course is relevant to all categories of organisations from a GP (or commercial organisation) through to the more extensive requirements for an NHS Trust or an Integrated Care Board (ICB).

The course will help you develop a practical understanding of cyber security and an appreciation of the tasks and skills required to apply in your day-to-day work to meet the DSP standards and help improve cyber security in the workplace.

The course is relevant to anyone who is required to submit or assist with a DSP Toolkit submission project or is new or unfamiliar with cyber-security. The course will typically be beneficial for those staff who have some responsibility for information governance, privacy, audit, IT, compliance or cyber security in an organisation that processes NHS patient data. These roles will include Senior Managers, Caldicott Guardian’s, IG Managers, IT Managers, Legal staff, Departmental Managers plus others.

This course can be taken as an individual day or part of the full 3 day course. This is day 3 of the full 3 day course.
