CCTV and the law

CCTV intrudes on peoples privacy, which is why the Information Commissioner's Office has written a code of practice specifically for CCTV. Your system must be installed, implemented and used within the requirements of the Data Protection Act, the Security Industry Act and the Human Rights Act.

There are very specific requirements of a system and its administration to ensure that access to live and recorded images is restricted both for the protection of those being monitored and for the preservation of evidence for use in a prosecution.

We have a comprehensive understanding of your legal obligations under the DPA, SIA, the need for a for a Privacy Impact Assessment, and we have a thorough understanding of network security.
