The Welsh Information Governance Toolkit is a self-assessment tool enabling organisations to measure their level of compliance against national Information Governance standards and legislation. 

The assessment will help identify those areas which require improvement and assist in informing organisations’ IG Improvement Plans. The aim is to demonstrate that organisations can be trusted to maintain the confidentiality and security of both personal and business information.

This will provide reassurance to staff and patients that their information is processed securely and appropriately, and assure other organisations where sharing is made that appropriate IG arrangement are in place.

The IG Toolkit consists of simple to follow assessments, comprising of a range of rudimental questions requiring tick box answers, one-line statements and the facility to upload or link to documents as evidence.
