Data Protection Compliance

Data Protection regulations affect all of us working in European businesses, the EU Data Protection Directive has been rolled out to a greater or lesser extent within all EU jurisdictions, and some non-EU states which are closely allied with the EU. Compliance is often ignored, or it is left to the IT department to be self-policing.

Data Protection Compliance is not an IT issue, it is a business issue. Whilst it is the responsibility of the IT function to ensure that data is stored safely to prevent unauthorised access, the implementation and management of this is a business matter. Too strict a regime inhibits business productivity and annoys customers, who are often unnecessarily fobbed of with the excuse "I can't tell you that because of data protection rules". Too lax a regime risks data protection breaches, data loss, the imposition of penalties and loss of corporate reputation. For these reasons data protection and the restrictions, procedures and training associated with compliance are primarily business issues.
