Data Handling Policy - JEDHub Survey 2022
The obligation to protect your company's data is taken very seriously through the implementation of policy and technical
security controls and processes to ensure the information contained within your survey return is safeguarded and used
only for the purpose of analysis in support of the publication of JEDHub products, including the Annual Economic Report
(the “Purpose”). Access to the survey data will be restricted as set out in this policy.
All data contained within the survey returns will be aggregated and anonymised by the JEDHub portal and made available
through an access-controlled area of the JEDHub portal to UK Government and a limited number of MOD authorised UKDSC
direct hire employees who manage and maintain the JEDHub portal on behalf of UK Government (“UKDSC staff”). Access to
the data will be strictly for the Purpose, except for the Defence Growth Partnership (“DGP”) companies, as set out
All survey returns are protected on a secure JEDHub portal and only accessible by MOD staff in the Industrial Programmes
team and named MOD analysts to enable Quality Assurance and a detailed descriptive analysis of the anonymised returns to
be undertaken. Should MOD require additional support to complete quality assurance activity, UKDSC staff analysts may
provide support. All work undertaken by UKDSC staff, if required, will be on a dedicated computer (accredited to OS) and
supervised by MOD staff in the Industrial Programmes team.
In exceptional circumstances, such as a technical fault or systematic error, MOD Industrial Programmes team will grant
UKDSC staff access to anonymised returns for the purpose of technical support. This support will be time limited with
access being removed once the issue has been resolved. Similarly, should there be a need for specified UKDSC staff to
undertake maintenance of the JEDHub digital infrastructure, discussion and approval via the Industrial Programmes team
will be required, and access will be reviewed frequently during the period of maintenance.

have time limited access to anonymised DGP only company data covering turnover, employment and purchase data under MOD
