Security and Compliance

Public Records (Scotland) Act

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 Security


The Information Security Team oversees the Council’s ICT security and ensures compliance with national standards such as PSN (Public Service Network), implements best practice and guidance from the Scottish Government and interacts with several security organisations such as CISP (Cyber-security and Information Sharing Partnership) and the new NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre). Much of the work of this team involves highlighting security awareness and risk management. 


Data Protection


The council’s Data Protection Officers ensures the Council complies with the Data Protection Act by raising awareness of data protection responsibilities and the management of personal information, ensuring that data protection policies and procedures are developed and implemented, communicated and embedded across all Council areas.


Records Management


Records Management involves the maintenance, retention and disposal of records in compliance with good practice and relevant legislation (including Freedom of Information and Data Protection).
