Ely, England, 13 October 2011 – ITGovernance Ltd, the global leader in DPA compliance information, standards, books, tools and training is warning organisations handling personal information that they need to comply with the the Data Protection Act (DPA). If they do not take action, and subsequently become a victim of a data breach, their reputation is at risk and they may be subject to heavy penalties.
The experts at IT Governance advise that 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. A comprehensive risk assessment will expose the vulnerabilities and identify the need for cyber security measures.
Organisations can spare themselves a great deal of time and money by implementing simple and cost-effective solutions to protect their personal data. The Complete Data Protection Toolkit from IT Governance enables organisations to assess their current levels of data protection and data compliance. The toolkit includes fully customisable documentation templates essential for achieving compliance. It also comes with two pocket guides that provide IT professionals with supporting guidance through their project.
The Complete Data Protection Toolkit removes the need for organisations to develop documents and policies from scratch. Furthermore, organisations that order a copy of the toolkit in October will receive a free single-user license for a Data Protection Staff Awareness e-learning course. The course will help you ensure that your staff understand their responsibilities in regards to data protection. Being a non- technical course, it is a quick and effective means of delivering staff DPA training.
