The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA 1998)
The Data Protection Act (DPA) sets out eight principles for securely managing personal information. The DPA does not offer any detailed specification as to comply with these principles, making it difficult for organisations to clearly identify what they have to do to satisfy themselves and others that their management systems are compliant.
