New training materials

As you will be aware the NHS IGTT was decommissioned on 31 December 2016 and a replacement home for training is in development. Based on user feedback, the interim "IG and DS Essentials" materials have been updated. The learning has been renamed "Data Security Awareness Level 1" to reflect Data Security Standard 3 in the Caldicott 3 Review that all staff undertake appropriate annual data security training and pass a mandatory test.

Also based on representations from users, we have updated the previous IGTT content provided for Caldicott Guardians, SIROs/IAOs and those managing requests for access to health records. These are provided as separate workbooks and presentation materials here
