"Christmas Time, Data Protection Time"

December 20, 2016

 

Hold on – those aren’t the words, are they?

 

While I am no Grinch and do not wish to spoil the time of year we all look forward to the most, the festive period is typically when data protection, like most things, takes a backseat and our minds are on presents, food and what to watch on TV. 

 

But you ignore data protection at your peril.  Make sure that it is Santa Claus – and not the Information Commissioner – who comes to town, by taking these steps:

 

  • employee levels can be low because holidays need to be used up before they are replenished in January.  Employees with data protection expertise might be out of the office and no one else can help with those difficult “can we do this?” queries.  Address this by training several employees in data protection to ensure you are not left out in the cold;

 

  • in the spirit of goodwill, some choose to give something back by volunteering.  Depending on what volunteers do, they may have access to personal data held by your organisation.  Even if they are only with you for a few days or weeks, volunteers should be data protection trained to reduce the likelihood of data security breach incidents, such as loss or unauthorised use of personal data.  If volunteers are children, ensure that you have parental consent to using their personal data for volunteering purposes;
