Perhaps the most important data protection principle is the principle that personal data must be kept securely.
In a digital economy increasingly dependent on technology and an ever growing risk of cyber-attack the challenge for organisations in relation to data security must be of the highest priority.
IT solutions and standards, such as Cyber Essentials, are fundamental aspects of data security but the most significant security risk is typically within an organisation, often through human neglect or error. It is therefore essential that organisational measures such as appropriate policies and staff training are implemented in addition to having place appropriate technical security measures.
Myerson can advise you on the standards of data security expected by the regulator and also provide appropriate information security policy documentation and staff training in relation to the importance of data protection (including data security).
We can also provide assistance in relation to how to respond in the event of a personal data breach.
