CCTV Compliance

There is now more and more focus on the use of CCTV in security and law enforcement. The UK is the most heavily CCTV monitored country in the world with over 4.2 million CCTV cameras nationwide. That’s 1 camera for every 14 people. But do we know what companies and organisations should be doing to make us feel confident that we are not having our privacy rights violated?

All CCTV operators should abide by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) CCTV Code of Practice. Even if a system is not registered with the ICO, they should still be adhering to the code, as well as the Data Protection Act 1998.

There are countless companies that sell the latest CCTV technologies, capable of taking and storing crystal clear images. Imagine if your company had installed a new and expensive CCTV system but it didn’t adhere to the CCTV compliance code. Any incidents that were captured on the system would be null and void because it wasn’t being used according to the CCTV legislation.

CCTV Courses

That’s where we come in. During our CCTV courses we teach you to operate and supervise the use of CCTV equipment in the correct way so that CCTV compliance best practices are observed and expensive mistakes don’t happen.
