Data Protection Compliance in the UK: A Pocket Guide (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The recent HMRC data breach - and the large number of other breaches reported since - raise a question about the extent to which those charged with handling personal data have been properly trained. The truth emerged in recent online survey carried out by IT Governance: only roughly half of employees handling personal information have been trained in their Data Protection Act ( DPA ) responsibilities. IT Governance has therefore published this new pocket guide to help organizations quickly get everyone responsible for data protection up to speed - and ensure that no one has grounds to complain of ignorance of the law! Written by leading data protection experts from international law firm Pinsent Masons LLP, this pocket guide provides everyone involved in the protection and security of personal data with clear guidance on the requirements of the DPA and how these must be met. The secure management of personal digital information is becoming a key challenge for public and private sector organisations alike, with the UK s Information Commissioner calling for DPA breaches to be subject to heavier and more strictly enforced penalties.

It is therefore essential that everyone responsible for securing personal data within an organisation has a practical understanding of their legal responsibilities. Data Protection Compliance in the UK has been published as an inexpensive and easily read introduction for any employee required to support compliance with the DPA. It: * Outlines UK and EU data protection regulations; * Describes the rights of individuals; * Explains the security obligations of organizations; * Addresses topics including o IT monitoring and interception, o enforcement provisions and o penalties for non-compliance. The book includes a helpful compliance checklist for staff, ensuring that its recommendations can swiftly be brought into practice.
