describe how to access guidance information and advice about handling information
Good information handling provides a range of benefits as well as helping you to comply with the Data Protection and Freedom of Information Acts. [ We have produced guidance for senior managers about taking a positive approach to information rights.
Data protection – looking after the information you hold
If you hold and process information about your clients, employees or
suppliers, you are legally obliged to protect that information. Under the Data Protection Act, you must:
only collect information that you need for a specific purpose;
keep it secure;
ensure it is relevant and up to date;
only hold as much as you need, and only for as long as you need it; and
allow the subject of the information to see it on request.
Good information handling makes good business sense, and provides a range of benefits. You'll enhance your business' reputation, increase customer and employee confidence, and by ensuring that the information is accurate, save both time and money. ]
