- Carrying out a comprehensive Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) review at the request of a higher education client to assess the adequacy of their current arrangements, providing advice and guidance to increase the efficacy of their response to a FOIA request. The review improved policies and procedures, compliance requirements, allocation of requests and the overall design and operation of systems.
- Providing complex data protection advice and solutions, specifically around issues of consent and data processing to an arm’s length government body with a statutory responsibility to protect and promote the rights of children, including the most vulnerable. This provided a range of data protection advice during the development of the recent Big Ask Survey, designed to address the inequalities impacting children revealed by the pandemic.
- Undertaking a review of counter terrorism risks and vulnerabilities within a local authority town centre and surrounding area and risks associated with the counter terrorism threat analysis relevant to the area. The review included and assessment of additional threats and vulnerabilities exists, requiring immediate actions for the Council to mitigate the risks in taking no effective action.
- Carrying out a comprehensive Crime Prevention and Security Site Review across a main council complex, for which public services are delivered from. In addition, TIAA ACS provided support in the development of a new Security Policy.
- Undertaking a review requested by an NHS Commissioner into the provision of a number of ‘pop up’ mobile vaccination units to target areas where participation in the Covid-19 vaccination programme has been historically low. The anti-vaccination movement has been strongly rejuvenated in recent years and now has a dedicated focus towards the disruption of Covid-19 vaccination units, particularly those which appear most vulnerable. The CCG requested the Anti-Crime Specialist team to assist with a risk assessment for the proposed mobile vaccination sites.
