DPA 2018 Compliance
Effective data protection
DPA 2018 Compliance Consultancy
The United Kingdom (UK) Data Protection Act 2018 establishes a minimum baseline for companies to ensure the protection of the information they process and give legal rights to people who have information stored about them. It sets new standards for protecting general data, in accordance with the GDPR, giving people more control over the use of their data.
The DPA 2018 applies to Personal Data and Sensitive Personal Data (also known as Special Category Data) which establishes guidelines that all UK companies should adopt for processing, storing and transmitting this information.
The regulation establishes objectives for ensuring the data is collected and used fairly, relevant and used only for the purpose it was collected, kept up to date and only for the length of time it was needed for and not transferred outside of the EEA unless the country has a suitable data protection law. Above all, businesses must provide an appropriate level of security to ensure the protection of this data.
Compliance to this legislation, while mandatory, can be difficult however, as the DPA 2018 does not establish any specific controls or even a general level of security for businesses to implement. Your business needs to design a framework conducive to adequately protecting the data based on its sensitivity.
The framework you design needs to be simple, effective and appropriate to the sensitivity of the data and documented in order to stand as proof of due diligence in the event you have a problem. Above all, it should be based on common sense. Risk Crew can help you design and execute such a program. Additionally, we can deliver:
