Why Data Protection is so important?
Employee records, customer information, loyalty schemes, transactions, and data collection are all examples of key pieces of information that businesses typically maintain. This is to prevent third parties from misusing the information for fraudulent purposes, such as phishing scams and identity theft.
The following are examples of common data that your company might keep:
- Phone number
- Bank / Credit card details
- Health Information
This information could pertain to your existing employees and their partners or relatives; shareholders, business partners, clients; customers, and other members of the public.
Businesses must follow specific rules in order to protect all of this data in compliance with the Data Protection Act.
