ASLIB – Helping you and your company manage risk, protect reputational capital and maintain excellent customer relationships. Privacy and Data Protection: Managing Information Matters is an ASLIB publication. Four issues of the magazine will be published annually.

Privacy and Data Protection law continues to evolve. Financial penalties have already been introduced in the UK, and that aspect is being toughened up. The European Commission is consulting on new Data Protection law, one requirement of which will be that all companies with 250 or more employees will have to appoint a Data Protection Officer. The USA has proposed a Privacy Bill of Rights, and other countries around the world are either updating existing laws, or introducing new ones in the privacy and data protection sphere – all as a reaction to market pressures.

Privacy and Data Protection: Managing Information Matters

Image: Privacy and Data Protection: Managing Information Matters latest issueIn this issue we bring you further insights into the practical advice which is on offer from around the world. These include Privacy and outsourcing guidelines, a Data Protection report on social housing organizations and the lessons it contains, over collection of personal information, and the ICO data sharing code.

At the time of going to press, Sir Tim Berners-Lee is commemorating twenty-five years since he invented the World Wide Web by stating that we need a Bill of Rights for Internet users. His rationale is the growing levels of government surveillance of, and corporate intervention in, people’s online activity.

Anyone who thinks that Privacy, Data Protection and Internet security issues are not relevant to them, their organization, or their customers would be wise to think again. The digital world is now pervasive, and it is very easy to fall foul of the regulatory regime.
