Data Protection - widening of data sharing
The current crisis has caused the Government and Information Commissioner to re-assess the data protection rules in order to allow those helping to share information to support efforts in the fight against coronavirus (COVID-19) - even if some of this data would normally have been too sensitive for wider sharing. This relaxation of the rules will give us access to additional data which can assist us in monitoring the local situation and helping to deliver the best support we can.
We have not yet received any information from OCC or the Vale but are hoping they will provide additional information on those most vulnerable so that we can ensure we have oversight of them and know we have not missed anyone.
In the meantime we have tightened up our data protection measures by password protecting certain data and, whilst recognising that volunteers may use a variety of electronic devices to access information, would ask that all volunteers follow best practise possible and do not share information except to those that need it to carry out their volunteer roles.
This data is password protected. Passwords will be issued separately to those who need access. Please do not share passwords with those not in the Support Group and/or Committee with anyone who is not a volunteer and whose name is not on the list.
