The Data Protection Act of 1998 (DPA) represents one of the most wide-reaching sets of security mandates in history. It applies to all public and private organizations that do business in the UK, and governs personal data no matter where it resides – in databases, in applications or on mobile, endpoint devices. Beginning in April 2010, the Information Commissioner’s Office acquired new powers to impose fines of up to ₤500,000 on organizations that fail to comply with the DPA.
So, how do organizations ensure that they comply with the requirements of this regulation? Many have turned to Liaison to find the answer.
