Why You Need this Checklist?
Avoid unnecessary fines and damage to the reputation of your service!
All children’s social care services must ensure there is clear and effective instruction on the use of CCTV within your premises and that you comply with the regulatory requirement. If you fail to ensure that you have followed the requirements you could find yourself facing unnecessary fines and business interruption.
“Business owners need to be aware of their obligations when dealing with people’s personal data and this includes footage from CCTV Cameras.”
“Being ignorant of the law and the regulator is no excuse; you could end up spending a day in court and receiving a fine, as well as suffering reputational damage to your business. This could all be avoided with some due care and attention.” Head of ICO Enforcement.
This detailed checklist will ensure that your Children’s Home or Service complies with the above requirements and will ensure that your home has covered all the areas needed when it comes to security and surveillance.
