This workshop examines the legal and practical issues associated with all types of surveillance cameras. Referencing the various legislation as well as the Information Commissioners code and the Surveillance Camera code, the trainer will help you form an action plan for compliance.

Public space and private area surveillance, use of drones, body cams, facial recognition and other software are all examined and discussed with signposts to relevant guidance and published best practice together with addressing the practical issues such as balancing the type of system required with the funds available, and ensuring lawful compliance when inheriting an older system.
