Dakota Meets Required Standards To Achieve NHS Digital Data Security & Protection Toolkit
31st January 2024
Real-time data capture, printing, mobility and voice-directed solutions specialist Dakota Integrated Solutions is delighted to announce that it has achieved the standards required to gain the NHS Digital Data Security and Protection Toolkit accreditation.
The Data Security and Protection Toolkit is an online self-assessment tool that allows organisations to measure their performance against the National Data Guardian’s 10 data security standards.
All organisations that have access to NHS patient data and systems must use this toolkit to provide assurance that they are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.
This accreditation means that Dakota’s business systems meet the required standards set out by the governing bodies within the NHS, enabling the company to provide systems and product to its NHS customers with the reassurance that Dakota has met these standards and that its solutions are secure and fully compliant.
Keith Hardy, Managing Director at Dakota comments, “We are delighted to have achieved this accreditation so that we are able to tender for NHS contracts safe in the knowledge that we are compliant with the stringent NHS governing standards surrounding data security. This is yet another feather in the cap of our successful and growing business, and we look forward to further broadening our scope with our existing NHS and Private Hospital Group customers, as well as new.”
