Security and Compliance

Saving...

Fife Council recognises that the information it holds is an important asset that must be controlled and protected.  In recognition of this, the Security and Compliance Team was formed and has various policies and procedures that must be followed to keep the Council’s valuable information secure, controlled and protected.

Information Governance

Information Governance (IG) is a term for all the ways in which the Council manages its information. IG comprises three principal arms, each of which are of equal importance in ensuring that the Council does the right thing with information and is compliant with the relevant legislation and regulation.  These are, in alphabetical order, data protection (DP), information security (IS) and records management (RM).  Over the course of 2018, the Council will be moving to an integrated approach to offering staff straight-forward guidance on what they need to do when working with or handling information. This will be under the banner of IG.
