ICO fines: The expense no company wants to face

With the ICO issuing their first fine to an NHS organisation last week of £70,000, it is an ominous reminder of the power the ICO holds over organisations that breach the Data Protection Act (DPA).

For failure to comply with the DPA, the ICO has the power to issue a fine of up to £500,000. So, no matter whether you are a small or even large business, a fine like that of £500k could be severely harmful to your business, on top of brand damage, and customers losing trust; an expense that no company wants to face.

Complying with the DPA and protecting your business is not going to be easy – no one ever said it would. But there are books and tools out there to help the process a lot more straightforward.

Take for example the Complete Data Protection Toolkit. This set of documents and tools provides all the tools and resources you need to carry out your own DPA project and become compliant quickly and cost-effectively.
