Policy is key in ensuring any security processes or risk mitigation are correctly focused.
Any organisation that operates CCTV for business purposes should have a CCTV policy and demonstrate an ongoing, legitimate need for their system. They must also register the system with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). The introduction of GDPR in May 2018 includes CCTV as data that should be appropriately managed and secured. To ensure this system is managed correctly we can help with the security policy development.
Dobson Owens will review CCTV arrangements at an organisation and advise on any associated data protection issues. We will then utilise our policy development services, preparing a comprehensive CCTV Policy that incorporates the key requirements including:
- System owner/responsibility
- System purpose
- Viewing of images and system administration arrangements
- Recording, storage and retention period
- Access to images
Policy is key in ensuring security quality assurance and any security processes or risk mitigation is focussed correctly and fully supports organisational goals. A correctly constructed security policy will highlight the most appropriate mix of hardware, procedures and personnel and provide guidance to your organisation as to how security measures will be implemented, and your business community’s responsibilities in this regard. The development of the Security policy should be an underpinning element of security strategy and planning.
Dobson Owens will support clients in policy development via bespoke policies that will support the day to day activities and operations and help create a strong security culture within the organisational community.
Dobson Owens will develop an overarching security policy that is bespoke to the organisation to include relevant sub-sections that detail responsibilities, protection/prevention measures and good practice.
Access Management Policy

For example, this may relate to vehicular, staff, contractor, customer or visitor access, temporal considerations or electronic access control systems.
