With International Data Protection Day this week we thought it would be helpful to offer some Data Protection Top Tips;

1. Keep your user details and passwords private
2. Research & understand your retention policy
3. …if you don’t have a retention policy then create one
3. Ensure that only those who require access to your businesses data have it
4. Make sure that data is kept up to date & is current
5. Communicate your Information Governance policy to your employees
6. Be creative with your passwords & ditch those like Password1 or Jan2015
7. Understand the DPA 1998 click here
8. When archiving paper files index correctly & avoid using terms like miscellaneous
