Information Governance Programme Progress Report

Report of the Group Director of Operations


The Group Director of Operations submitted a report (previously circulated) to provide a six monthly update to the Audit Committee as required by The Systems and Information Governance Group (SIGG) and to outline planned developments of the information governance programme.


It was reported that the ongoing delivery of the information governance programme continued to provide the assurance required to reduce the information risks to an acceptable level and outlined the ongoing works.


It was also reported that the area of highest priority in the information governance programme was 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.


Members expressed their concern about the poor attendance/compliance in Children’s Services noting the 41.38 per cent compliance figure against the 95 per cent target and requested information be provided to Members to give details on the reasons for poor compliance, what plan/intentions were in place to improve; and  when compliance will be achieved.


RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
