Many businesses use CCTV systems for their security benefits, however the images of people captured is classified as personal data. Due to this, businesses must comply with the Data Protection Act, or from May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
The GDPR will require controllers to undertake a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) when their processing is likely to result in a high risk to individuals.
Our draft guidance (expected later this month) will give further detail on how to assess risk, and will also propose a list of processing operations where DPIAs will be mandatory. The guidance will also discuss in what circumstances controllers will have to consult the ICO prior to processing. We will be seeking comments before 13 April, please check our Guide to the GDPR for further details.
"We want to work closely with the SIA to make sure our industry is presented in the best way possible," comments Abbey Petkar, managing director of Magenta Security Services and press officer for the SBN.
