iStandUK’s director of standards, Paul Davidson, has recorded a video walkthrough of the Information Sharing Gateway. The Information Sharing Gateway is a cloud based service, developed by the Lancashire and Cumbria IG Group and University Hospital of Morecambe Bay, which allows collaborating organisations to come together to describe themselves, their IG credentials and accreditation.

This walkthrough explores the Information Sharing Gateway through a sandpit function and covers the following:


  • Setting up an organisation account 
  • Setting up assurance levels for an organisation using ICO registration number
  • Creating  a data inventory for an organisations and requests to view and share the data inventories of others
  • Data sharing summaries
  • Data flow lists
  • Privacy impact and risk assessments.
