UK Data Protection Act 1998
Secure Personal Data to Comply with UK Data Protection Act
Organisations that do business in the United Kingdom must comply with the broad-sweeping Data Protection Act of 1998. This legislation that governs the security of personal data—defined as any data about a living and identifiable individual.
The Data Protection Act governs any data that is held, or intended to be held, on computers. Data stored within any “relevant filing system”—including laptops, desktops, smartphones, USB drives, CD/DVD’s or any other endpoint device—is also subject to the Data Protection Act. To meet the rigorous requirements of this regulation, organisations both public and private must be able to secure personal data no matter where it resides.
