Final Countdown for Data Security and Protection Toolkit!

Deadline June 30th!

With less than 2 weeks left until June 30th, now is the time to get those submissions completed.

For those who are publishing at Approaching Standards, you need to finish answering any mandatory assertions and complete the action plan to show how you’ll reach Standards Met the following year.

If you’re moving from Approaching Standards to Standards Met this year, you just need to finish answering the mandatory assertions and you’ll then be fully compliant with the DSPT.

If you reached Standards Met or Standards Exceeded in previous years, you need to log back into the DSPT and reconfirm the assertions and make updates where necessary. The DSPT is a yearly self-audit that ensures you’re compliant with regulatory and contractual obligations while also providing you with the knowledge and skills for data protection and cyber security.

If you are publishing your DSPT for multiple locations and need support please contact or

Free support for any aspect of the DSPT is available from RCPA. Please contact for more information.

Free webinars from Better Security Better Care on completing the DSPT are available:
