Legislation Summary – Data Protection Act

To date, monetary penalties totalling  over £6 million have been issued to UK organisations by the Information Commissioner’s Office for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act.

With enforcement of data protection laws becoming more stringent and the ICO pushing for greater deterrents to prevent unlawful use of personal data  – including prison sentences – it is more important than ever for all businesses and organisations to understand what steps they must take to comply.

This two page summary outlines key elements of the legislation and serves as both a guide on taking the first steps to compliance and a refresher for those who may already be well on the road.  It includes:

  • Explanations of some of the key terminology in the DPA
  • What the legislation covers and who must comply
  • Penalties for breaching the Act
  • Practical steps you can take towards compliance
