The way a business manages the personal data entrusted to it by its employees and customers can make or make its reputation.Data protection and privacy is more in the spotlight now than has ever been the case previously. The Information Commissioner is showing an increasing willingness to take enforcement action or even prosecute, and data breaches regularly feature in news reports.
The key to getting it right is making sure that your business has the right policies and procedures in place to ensure that personal data is properly managed – and that the Data Protection Act is complied with.
At Star Legal, we have the experience and expertise in data protection to guide your business. We know that properly handling personal data isn’t something you can approach with a ‘one size fits all’ solution. Every business is different, and we recognise this. We will prepare your policies and procedures in a way that is appropriate to your specific business, offering pragmatic and practical advice based on our experience and expertise.
It is also vital that your employees know how data protection law affects them. It is becoming increasingly common for employees themselves to be prosecuted for their misuse of the personal data held by their employers. We can help by creating a tailored training package for your business.
