7. How do we ensure the security of personal data?

West Mercia Police takes the security of all personal data under our control very seriously. We will comply with the relevant parts of the Data Protection Act 2018, the GDPR and LED relating to security, and seek to comply with the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) and relevant parts of the ISO27001 Information Security Standard.

We will ensure that appropriate policy, training, technical and procedural measures are in place, including audit and inspection, to protect our manual and electronic information systems from data loss and misuse, and only permit access to them when there is a legitimate reason to do so, and then under strict guidelines as to what use may be made of any personal data contained within them. These procedures are continuously managed and enhanced to ensure up-to-date security.
