Data security awareness training is now live  (25/07/2017)

The Data Security Awareness Level 1 e-learning package, which replaces the annual IG training provided through the IG Training Tool, is now live on https://nhsdigital.e-lfh.org.uk/ and via the Electronic Staff Record.

An evaluation of the training package is underway until 7 August 2017 and will consider users’ feedback on the resource. All assessments completed during this period of evaluation will still be valid.

We would encourage users to submit their feedback for each session using the feedback icon that will appear after each session has been accessed.

The results of the evaluation will be applied to future improvements of the training package.

Data Security Standard 3 in the Caldicott 3 Review requires that all staff undertake appropriate annual data security training and pass a mandatory test. Therefore, if non-permanent staff have access to personal information they need to complete annual training.

Training modules

The training is split into four learning modules with an additional “Welcome module”. Each learning module takes 12-14 minutes to complete and concludes with an assessment.

The modules can be taken in any order and the system will record the assessment pass mark and issue a certificate on successful completion (a score of 80% or more).

The topics covered in the four modules are:

  • 1. Introduction to security awareness
  • 2. Information and the law
  • 3. Data security - protecting information
  • 4. Breaches and incidents

Level 2 and Level 3 learning material will be released over the coming months.
