ICO 'Must Do' Data Protection Guide

 
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has published a guide to protecting personal data, ‘ which it describes as outlining the procedures organisations must follow to ensure data security.

In the wake of a fine of £200,000 being handed to a charity which suffered data protection breaches due to lax Internet security, clients are reminded that data protection breaches can prove to be very expensive indeed.

Although the guide deals with the technical aspects of data security, data protection breaches can also have a financial impact under other areas of the law – contract and employment law, to name but two.

We can advise you on the legal issues relating to data security and how to ensure that your risk of financial loss in the event of a breach is minimised.
