COMPLIANCE ASSURANCE PROGRAM

In order to ensure compliance with regulations and legislation, an organisation should commence by conducting a review or audit of compliance.

Data Compliance Limited have extensive experience of conducting compliance reviews of internal procedures and security practises. An audit provides assurance for the Board and executive management that the organisation is in compliance with EU Law and industry regulations. Our audit reports deliver an executive summary for the Board and Senior Management while including a complete assessment of gaps and recommendations for corrective and/or preventive action.

It is best practice to review security controls at least annually, however this may need to be performed more frequently should regulations or legislation require it.

WHY DATA PROTECTION COMPLIANCE IS VITAL

Information and the supporting processes, systems, and networks are important valuable assets.Data Protection elements fig - 1.jpg Defining, achieving, maintaining, and improving information security is essential to maintain:

  • Legal and regulatory compliance
  • Customer confidence and trust
  • Competitive edge
  • Reputational risk and damages
  • Sanctions and penalties

To work effectively, information security and IT Governance must be regarded as an attitude rather than a product. Buying firewalls, anti virus software and intrusion detection, not to mention installing security patches on all your servers and workstations will only get you so far. Unless you can also persuade people of the concept, you are still at significant risk from a security breach of some kind. Cyber criminals know the weakest link in your organisation’s armour is almost certainly a person rather than technology.

In short, any one of your data processors (employees, contractors and third parties) from administration, to credit control, to accounts and senior management could be the target of a virus, cyber crime or social engineering attack.

By helping staff understand the risks to information systems and by outlining their responsibilities of ‘due care’ in policies and procedures, you are not only mitigating risk of attack but are complying with obligations such as the Data Protection Act also.

The Political Meaning of Bush v. Gore
Peter Gabel
In the early afternoon of December 8, 2000—five weeks into the national debate about who had won the presidential election and four days before the United States Supreme Court settled the matter—San Francisco's 24 Divisidero bus was making its way along its cross-town route. On the surface, everything seemed normal on that bus—the passengers isolated in their passive roles, staring blankly straight ahead or looking aimlessly out of their windows, each avoiding eye contact with the other, proceeding along on the conveyor belt of social alienation that has imprisoned so many of us so much of the time for the last twenty years.
Then suddenly a big guy in a brown leather jacket got on the bus at Haight Street and shouted, 'The Florida Supreme Court decided for Gore 4–3!' Instantly, p…
