Data Protection Toolkit

The Information Commissioner's Office has published a data protection toolkit on its website to help small and medium sized enterprises (SME's) comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.

The toolkit covers issues such as data protection assurance, records management, information security, data sharing and subject access, and direct marketing.

On completion, SME's will be given a compliance rating and detailed suggestions as to how compliance could be improved and links to relevant ICO guidance.

"Good data protection management is essential if complaints and fines are to be avoided" says partner and commercial solicitor, Gillian Jones. "However, it can also affect the value and marketability of your business when you come to sell."
