NHS Commercial Solutions sponsors Security Classification webinar

10th March 2015

NHS Commercial Solutions has awarded a framework agreement for the provision of services for the secure deletion of data from, and subsequent disposal of, redundant ICT assets.

Unauthorised disclosure of information is a major risk to organisations working with sensitive data, mainly due to the increasing dependence on electronic storage systems and the use of disposable media. NHS and third party systems may contain sensitive, patient-identifying or business critical data.

One issue facing NHS organisations is understanding the data security classifications, particularly with last year’s introduction of the Government Security Classifications (GSC) and the recent updates to Information Assurance Standard 5 (IAS5). To help NHS organisations understand the classifications, in association with NHS Commercial Solutions, the security division of Euro Recycling, one of the service providers on the framework agreement is hosting a number of educational Webinars. The Webinars are designed to help NHS professionals understand how the new GSC impacts how they must now classify and subsequently sanitise or destroy that data in accordance with HMG IAS5.

The webinars are open to all NHS organisations. If you are interested please register here.
