I wish I was surprised that most staff of most companies are not aware of the new penalties available to the ICO in respect of reckless breaches of the DPA. Of course, there may be an argument that most staff in most companies don’t need to be aware, because their organisations are already in complete compliance with the DPA. I would be surprised, though…..
Anyway, we just launched a set of staff awareness posters, specifically to help with raising staff awareness around specific Data Protection Act issues. We hope they help improve awareness of critical responsibilities around protecting personal data and preventing identity theft.
