A plain English guide to data protection is the latest weapon being deployed by the Information Commission’s Office to try and stem the tide of data losses and security breaches. It provides guidance in straightforward language and using practical, business-based examples. “The Data Protection Act provides us all with important privacy rights and the vast majority of businesses and organisations understand their legal obligations to protect our personal details. However, there are still too many organisations playing fast and loose with personal data. This new guide will help organisations comply with the law and demystify data protection,” says Information Commissioner Christopher Graham.
