Data Protection Compliance?
If your organization handles information about individuals, whether your employees, customers, members of the public or otherwise, it must handle it in compliance with the Data Protection Act and various other laws and regulations.
You might not be aware of what these obligations are but take a look at some recent high profile breaches to get an idea of how far reaching the implications of failing to comply could be for your business. These include: –
- Fines of up to £500,000 for a serious breach (set to increase to 4% of global annual turnover);
- Enforcement action by the Regulator; and
- Brand damage leading to loss of customer trust and confidence.
