What are the best books on data privacy?

Organisations are always looking for affordable ways to keep their data secure, but sometimes the simplest solutions are the best – and nothing beats the simplicity of a book.

With books, you get expert advice at your fingertips. You can study whenever is convenient and you can access the information for as long as you need it.

The problem, of course, is that there are so many guides to data privacy out there that it’s hard to know which one is right for you. Fortunately, we’ve done the hard work for you, selecting four essential books that can help you manage data effectively and meet your data privacy obligations.

EU GDPR: A Pocket Guide, Schools’ edition

The education sector is arguably affected by the GDPR more than any other industry. Schools must process vast amounts of personal data on students (as well as staff), and many of them have struggled to invest as much as they would like in data protection.

To help schools navigate their unique circumstances, we’ve created a revised edition of our pocket guide. The advice is tailored to help schools understand how the GDPR affects them and the steps they must take to achieve compliance.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA): An implementation guide

If your organisation collects California residents’ personal data, you will soon have to contend with the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act). The law, which takes effect from 1 January 2020, applies to certain companies depending on their annual turnover, how much personal data they collect and whether they sell the information for profit.

You can find out more about the CCPA by heading over to our US site and purchasing our implementation guide. Written by data protection expert and consultant Preston Bukaty, this handbook provides a comprehensive explanation of the law’s scope and how to achieve compliance.
