Operational group meetings

In your organisation, operational level groups meet to discuss and coordinate data protection and information governance activities.

Ways to meet our expectations:

  • The groups meet and are attended by relevant staff regularly.
  • The groups produce minutes of the meetings and action plans.
  • The agenda shows the groups discuss appropriate data protection and information governance issues regularly.
  • Any data protection and information governance issues and risks that arise are report to the oversight group.

Can you answer yes to the following questions?

  • Would the group members say that the meetings are effective?
  • Do they meet frequently enough and cover appropriate topics?
  • Is the oversight group aware of the issues and risks?
