Security measures to be taken under the Data Protection Act

 

As a holder of membership data you are under certain security obligations arising from the Data Protection Act 1998. In general terms, this means that you must have appropriate organisational and technical security measures in place to protect this data. There are no 'standard measures' as such, as the level of security should be assessed by yourselves, taking into account the following considerations:

  • The cost of implementing security measures
  • The harm that may result if your security is breached
  • The nature of the data.

It's important to note that management and organisational measures are as important to consider as technical ones. A standard risk assessment should identify potential threats to your systems, the vulnerability of your system to those threats and the measures that need to be put in place to manage those risks. Some areas to consider in assessing these measures include:

  • Do you have a written security policy within your company and is the responsibility for the policy placed on a particular person or department?
  • Who has access to the information? Can the information be accessed without a password?
  • Do you have an authentication procedure in place to identify a person to whom personal data may be disclosed over the phone?
  • Are back-up copies of all the data stored separately from the live files?
  • Is there adequate protection against viruses and other forms of intrusion?
  • Do the systems keep audit trails so that access to personal data is logged and can be attributed to a particular person?
