CCTV Compliance

What do we do?
CameraWatch™ is committed to working closely with lone workers, academics and students to develop events and initiatives that impact on all parts of the CCTV Community. It also recognises that it is important to act with all Business Members to develop events, initiatives, promotion at forum and communication events and discussion through its interactive website and industry-wide Technical and Compliance Sub Group that impact on all parts of the CCTV community.
CCTV usage is bound by the Data Protection Act and CameraWatch is here to ensure that you maintain your legal obligation.
There are over 70 points of law guiding CCTV compliance with the Data Protection Act and the management of data (images) collected by a CCTV system.
Camerawatch fully endorses the Information Commissioner's recommendations for an annual audit / assessment to be carried out to ensure that your CCTV system complies with the law. This should be carried out by experts in CCTV Data Protection Compliance. There is no point in having an audit and making good any issues raised if it is not regularly reviewed. What is compliant at present may not be compliant - or indeed needed - in 12 months time.
What We Know
Organisations believe that their own internal Legal Department or Data Protection Department have the sufficient knowledge to assess the specific issues of Data Protection and CCTV. Regrettably this has been proven to be a false assumption. Again, Camerawatch highly recommends that organisations carry out regular independent assessments of the data compliance of their CCTV systems.
