Class B cemetery trust stakeholders
The Attestation for 2024 is included in the 2024 Class B Cemetery Trust Protective Data Security Plan (PDSP) form. It is not a separate document that you have to complete this year.
Protective Data Security Plan
Class B Cemetery Trusts have a responsibility to effectively identify and manage information security risks across the information lifecycle.
To do this, cemetery trusts must document any information security risks relating to the management of its information. This is called the Security Risk Profile Assessment (SRPA) process.
When completing the 2024 Class B Cemetery Trust PDSP, consider the activities undertaken during the 1 July 2022 – 30 June 2024 reporting period.
Organisations are expected to submit a copy of a PDSP to OVIC between 1 July 2024 – 31 August 2024.
If you are a VPS agency or Class A Cemetery Trust, please visit this page to access the relevant PDSP form.
This document provides detailed guidance on completing the Class B Cemetery Trust Protective Data Security Plan.
