Data Protection

30th October 2008 General Interest 0 Comments

Following the Information Commissioner’s call on 29th October for Chief Executives to take responsibility for data protection safeguards, the British Security Industry Association is emphasising that all aspects of security should be a matter of major priority for organisational heads.

BSIA Chief Executive, David Dickinson, comments: ‘Data protection safeguards are essential to any business in terms of the security of both the organisation itself and the customers that it serves. With identity fraud a spectre that continues to haunt both the public and private sectors, it is particularly important that data is disposed of securely by a professional information destruction company to ensure that any confidential waste does not fall into the wrong hands.’
