Frequently asked questions
What is data protection?
Data protection refers to the safeguarding of personal data from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, modification, or destruction. It involves ensuring that data is collected and processed lawfully and fairly, stored securely, and not used for purposes other than those for which it was collected.
Who is responsible for data protection?
Data protection is the responsibility of anyone who collects, processes, or stores personal data, including individuals, businesses, and government agencies.
What should I do if I think my data has been compromised?
If you think your data has been compromised, you should contact the organisation that holds your data as soon as possible. They may be able to take steps to prevent further harm, such as cancelling a credit card or changing a password. You may also want to report the incident to the regulator and monitor your accounts for any unauthorised activity.
Why is data protection important?
Data protection is important because it helps to protect individuals’ privacy and prevent identity theft, fraud, and other harmful activities. It also helps to build trust between organisations and their customers, as customers are more likely to do business with organisations that they trust to protect their personal data.
What are some common data protection measures?
Common data protection measures include using strong passwords, encrypting data, limiting access to data, regularly backing up data, and using firewalls and antivirus software. Organisations may also have policies and procedures in place for data protection, such as privacy policies and incident response plans.
