Following the successful series of training events for NHS Senior Information Risk Owners (SIRO) and Information Asset Owners (IAO) in May 2010, it is now proposed to run a number of related training workshops for local Information Asset Administrators (IAA). These IAA workshops will explore the information risk scenarios previously discussed with SIRO and IAOs with a view to identifying areas where IAA assistance, intervention and action would have reduced risks.
These half day workshop events will take place at venues in London, Birmingham and Leeds and will encourage discussion of information risk issues and mitigations, and facilitate the sharing of relevant experience.
A representative of the Department of Health Information Governance policy team will be on hand to support each event.
IAA workshop attendees will likely include NHS IG Managers, Information Security Officers, Records Managers and Data Protection Officers. As these IAA training workshops will be very popular, attendance will be limited to one or two attendees per organisation and may depend on spaces available.
