No, it needn't be difficult. Much of the work needed to meet the requirements of the Data Protection Act is common sense. The rest can be greatly simplified through simple to use task lists, checklists, templates and questionnaires.

This site is designed to catalog the easiest yet most effective approaches and products... to make the Data Protection Act less of a trauma and more of a straight forward business process.

The DPA Toolkit

             Background Information

The DPA Toolkit comprises a series of items designed with one purpose in mind: to make the act much easier to tackle.

Included in the product are: a task list; a data protection act introduction/guide; an audit checklist; a corporate policy statement and a detailed compliance questionnaire. All are provided in a PDF and MS-Word download package (the latter so that you can edit the contents freely).

The Data Protection Act can be as difficult or as simple as you want it to be. The DPA Toolkit is intended for those who require the latter!

The Data Protection Act contains eight Data Protection Principles. These state that all data must be: Processed fairly and lawfully; Obtained & used only for specified and lawful purposes; Adequate, relevant and not excessive; Accurate, and where necessary, kept up to date; Kept for no longer than necessary; Processed in accordance with the individuals rights (as defined); Kept secure; Transferred only to countries that offer adequate data protection.

The legislation underpinning these principles is extremely complex. It is not suitable for direct devolution to all the staff/managers who may have responsibility for personal data or for quick interpretation by the busy professional. Nor does it, on its own, provide a measure of compliance. Hence the need for supporting products and information.

Principle 7: Data Security

Further Information

The Data Protection Act requires that appropriate security measures are in place to safeguard against unauthorised or unlawful access/processing of personal data.

To help you put the basics in place we have therefore identifed several sources which embrace topics often considered to be pre-requisites to sound information security. These cover: Security Policies, Disaster Recovery Planning and Security Audit

For more information on the Data Protection Act we are pleased to introduce our online DPA bookstore.
