Government-wide guidance to those involved in data handling, setting clear common standards and procedures for Departments on data security, should be further reviewed, focusing on the support provided to those performing particular roles, such as the Senior Information Risk Officer. Given the importance of data to improving public service delivery and in tackling crime including fraud, such guidance should not only cover questions of security, but also a requirement on the owners of significant public sector information assets to consider how they can best be used to support the delivery of public services or to help to tackle crime, consistent with high levels of data protection and legal provisions.
