Data Management Priorities for NGBs What are YOUR data protection and data management priorities?
Data Management Priorities for NGBs 1. Security: Keeping personal data safe – Data Protection Act 1998 (Principle 7) – Appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect from loss, misuse or damage – Managing a breach: notification? – Enforcement: monetary penalties of up to £500,000 (for now)
Data Management Priorities for NGBs 2. Consents: making personal data work for you – Data Protection Act 1998 (Principle 1) – "Fair and lawful processing": information/consent – Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003: electronic "direct marketing" – Data protection statements – Privacy Policies
Data Management Priorities for NGBs 3. Information requests: how to respond – Data Protection Act 1998: Subject Access Requests Written request for own personal data 40 days to respond Exemptions and limitations A practical response? – Freedom of Information Act 2000
Data Management Priorities for NGBs 4. Outsourcing: trusting third parties with data – Data processor = third party processing personal data on NGB's behalf (NGB remains responsible) – Due diligence, written contract (security, control) – No transfer outside the EEA without "adequate protection" (Principle 8) – Data protection issues in "the cloud"
