Televigil Associates are pleased to have advised and assisted ManorWalks Shopping Centre and Retail Park, Cramlington, gain their Certification as an approved CCTV scheme operator under the Surveillance Camera Commissioners Scheme and they can now realise the benefit of the scheme that provides reassurance to customers and visitors that they are operating surveillance in accordance with the SCC code of practice.
Our commission, included a full system performance assessment and audit of Operation, Management, Review of Policy and Procedures, Data Protection and Privacy Impact Assessments (DPIA's) and we also supplied them with a DPA/GDPR Compliant Digital Evidence System and Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) media and management documentation.
Some kind and wise words from the client "With your help, we have set a bar on what we want to achieve, and we really need to maintain and develop this culture".
The British Parking Association has announced that it is expecting that when Operators are using cameras and ANPR to manage parking, they will sign up to the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s Code of Practice and adopt the Guiding Principles. As author of the Parking Practice Notes PPN12 - CCTV in Parking Facilities for the BPA, this is a great initiative that members should consider seriously. If BPA members require guidance with working towards certification and the Surveillance System Commissioners "Passport to Compliance" , please do not hesitate to contact me.
I am looking forward to getting back on the road again next week by starting a UK business tour after having had a successful knee replacement last November.
The last two months being home office based has given me the opportunity to learn and focus on the GDPR by distance learning, attending some excellent webinars hosted by BSI, ICO and other organisations.
GDPR is certainly going to have an impact on the security industry, and that is reflected by the increase in enquiries and our business projected over the next period.
All Televigil System Performance Assessment Data Spreadsheets and supporting documentation have been now been updated to include BS EN 62676 Minimum standards for CCTV/VSS and our Operational Audit Documentation, Policies, Procedures, Management and Processing Documentation are GDPR ready.
I would like to thank all my personal customers for bearing with me for my time at home and allowing me to work remotely when possible.
