Does your organisation process CCTV images? Do you understand what is required to ensure that you legally comply with the Data Protection Act if and when CCTV is used? Images which can identify a member of the public are ‘personal data’.
They must be respected and protected as a legal requirement of the Data Protection Act (DPA). Failure to do so, mis-use, mis-management or abuse of images is non-compliance. It could lead to prosecution or it may be that the images cannot be used as evidence in a court of law.
The system must be registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) if it processes images of the public which can identify them.
The Data Protection Act regulations and the CCTV Code of Practice can be a minefield!
We run workshops that teach you about CCTV compliance for your business, so that you understand what you do and don’t need to do.
