Since April 2010, the Information Commissioner is expected to impose 25 Monetary Penalty Notices, each of up to £500k, per annum. Organisations that fail to take reasonable measures that they ought to have taken to comply with the DPA will be in the firing line.
Every organisation must avoid being on that list: as a minimum, organisations should carry out a DPA compliance audit, to establish what still needs to be put in place and to establish lines of responsibility, and should carry out a risk assessment around their personal data.
This DPA Compliance Kit contains all the tools for doing it yourself.
How will this compliance kit help?
So you know that you have to comply with the Data Protection Act, and you know that if you are found to be in breach of the DPA the ICO can levy tough penalties, far tougher than any seen before.
The first thing you need to do is identify your current level of conformance. The DPA Compliance Assessment Tool will help you do this: it provides recommendations and offers guidance to help you close any gaps that are identified.
Once you have identified exactly what you need to do in order to become fully compliant with the DPA, you will find the DPA Compliance Documentation Toolkit invaluable. It includes all the documentation templates, which are fully customisable, that are essential for any UK data controller (and UK organisation that is responsible for personal information) seeking compliance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998.
The Assessment Tool and the Documentation Toolkit will enable your organisation to become fully compliant with the DPA. However, to make the process easier and to provide supporting guidance we have included two essential pocket guides:
- Data protection Compliance in the UK, which will help everyone in the organisation responsible for data protection get up to speed – and ensure that no one has grounds to complain of ignorance of the law!
- How to Survive a Data Breach which provides essential support for organisations tackling this mission.
