If your organisation does use CCTV, please state the number of days that the CCTV footage is kept for. If your organisation does not use CCTV, please put 0 (zero). If different retention times are used depending on the CCTV system, please state the different retention times in the notes and enter the lowest retention time in the answer box.

The recommended length of time to electronically retain CCTV footage is 31 days. This depends upon local risk assessment criteria. Retention of CCTV footage is essential as criminal acts or incidents of industrial espionage are not always immediately discovered. It should be noted that CCTV images are subject to GDPR legislation and should be stored securely.
