Report of the Managing Director
The Managing Director submitted a report (previously circulated) on the progress and planned developments of the information governance programme.
It was reported delivery of the governance programme would provide the assurance required and would reduce the information risks to an acceptable level and recognises that the data processing activities of the Council continually evolve and must be kept under review.
The submitted report outlined the ongoing work which included preparation for data protection after the EU Exit transition period ends, as the highest priority in the information governance programme; review of the Council’s Information Asset Register (IAR) and Privacy Notices; provision of advice to ensure the Council’s CCTV is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations/Data Protection Act 2018 and the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012; and work to achieve our target for the completion of on-line mandatory information governance training courses.
RESOLVED – That the progress on the implementation of the Information Governance Programme be noted.
