Data Security and Privacy are becoming more and more important each day, as new methods of sharing personal information become available.
A data privacy standard has been developed to help individuals in therapy based professions to achieve and demonstrate that they understand the full implications of data privacy when it comes to theirs and the personal data of their clients.
The Privacy4 standard has been specifically designed to provide detailed guidance on what is considered best practice in relation to the protection of personal data.
The Privacy4 standard has been developed with the help of industry experts to provide clear and unambiguous instructions on what should be followed in order to provide privacy for key industry sectors.
The Privacy4 Standard has been designed to deliver the most important aspects of protecting data, so that you can quickly integrate these practices within your business.
When you join the certification programme and choose to demonstrate that you follow the Privacy4 Standard, you can use the standard to assess your ability to demonstrate that you are following best practice when dealing with personal data.

Who is Privacy4 and why does it exist?
Privacy 4 Ltd is a company that was put together after many teaching days around data protection, whereby Cath Knibbs (Director and CEO) recognised the need for certain professions to become more aware and competent in this area. Specifically Therapists who are still, to date mostly confused about issues such as privacy notices and consent.
Many questions were raised and repeated along the way that highlighted how confusing many people found data protection and digital technology in these professions.
The project was conceived and a number of high level professionals in the sectors of cyber security, data protection, GDPR, ethical hacking, risk management and website design and maintenance were consulted whilst the standard was created and demystified for the professions that use therapist, counsellor, psychotherapist, psychologist and other listening role titles to describe their work.
The intention of the Privacy4 was to develop a standard which could provide clear and unambiguous instructions on what should be followed in order to provide data privacy for key industry sectors.
The world in which we live is becoming increasingly digitised, and the reliance on data has never been greater. Indeed, we are all actively encouraged to provide more data about ourselves than ever before.
We need to be mindful about the data we are sharing, both in our personal and our professional lives because all data is valuable.
All data is valuable to someone, and therefore it must be protected
