Data Protection Act – Don’t be the Third to be Fined

Will the Information Commissioner be knocking on your door?

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has confirmed that it is in the process of imposing fines against two organisations in the UK that have breached the Data Protection Act (1998).

Deputy information commissioner, David Smith told at an Internet Society event in London last week, that the regulator hopes that the fines will make a significant statement about data protection.

“There have been a lot of questions asked of us about whether we are actually going to fine firms, and I can assure people that we will be actively using this power.”
Confirmed David Smith, Deputy Information Commissioner at the ICO.

To prevent your organisation from being the third to be fined this month, we have reduced the price of this course to £295 (normally £440).
