CCTV has become a very common form of surveillance and, because so much information about indviduals can be gained from the collection of images, the data (images) recorded by a CCTV system fall under the Data Protection Act and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
With penalties for the misuse of data and penalties for failing to control the security of data it is worth all businesses, no matter how small, making an effort to control the data (images) that they hold.
Syam's CCTV Log Book is an A4 format book with plastic laminated cover for durability and has been designed to assist with management of the CCTV system itself. It has sections to detail the following:
1) Details of the premises, the administrator and the installer's and maintanance company's details.
2) A record of the control equipment and the hardware or cloud-based system used to store the data.
3) Camera Log: all camera types, part numbers, etc. can be recorded here to simplify maintenance.
4) Incident Log: for operators to record notable incidents including date, time and location on data storage together with the details of the incident itself and what action was taken subsequently.
5) Faults and repairs.
6) Service access.
Sections 5 and 6 describe the work undertaken and specifically identify the 'reason for the work' as this should be recorded for any person given access to the data (images).
The CCTV/LB30 is ideal for cafe's, restaurants, retail shops, pubs, night clubs, service stations and any other location where a CCTV system is recording images of members of the public.
The CCTV/LB30 can be used to record the maintenance of systems with ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) but does not include any of the documentation for the ANPR process itself.
