Navigate the basics of DPA compliance


Ely, England, 9 May 2011 - IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in DPA Compliance information, standards, books, tools and training, is now offering four products which, together, enable any organisation to navigate the basics of ensuring that its procedures for protecting personal information are in compliance with the UK’s Data Protection Act.

With consumers increasingly alarmed by data breach headlines and the maximum penalty for breach of the DPA now pegged at £500k, it is basic business sense for any organisation to ensure it is in compliance with the requirements of the DPA.

The first of the four products from IT Governance is the DPA Compliance Assessment Tool: a simple software tool that helps the organisation assess whether or not its procedures are compliant with the DPA and, where they aren’t, recommends the steps necessary to improve them. Buy the DPA Compliance Assessment Tool for only £29.95.

The second is the handy pocket guide DPA Compliance in the UK. Written by one of the UK’s leading team of DPA compliance lawyers, this pocket guide should be issued to everyone in the organisation who has any involvement in or responsibility for data protection within the organisation. Available from at just £19.95, multiple copies can be acquired less expensively.

The third is the DPA Compliance Toolkit. This unique toolkit contains the document templates and tools 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. Using the DPA Compliance Toolkit (from at just £99.95) means that you don’t have to re-invent wheels – you just deploy tried and tested documents to bring yourself into alignment with the requirements of the DPA.

The fourth is the DPA Foundation Course, which takes just one day, and has been described as “the best Data Protection course there is!” Another delegate said that the course "brought data protection act to life' - engaging tutor." Everyone in the organisation with DPA and data loss prevention responsibilities deserves to be sent on this course – it will ensure they are able to help the organisation protect personal data in compliance with the DPA.

Organisations can book delegates onto the DPA course online, just as they can purchase the DPA toolkits online. They can also be purchased directly from the friendly, helpful IT Governance service centre team on telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750. Larger organisations can make bookings or purchases with a Purchase Order either by telephone or by email to
