Butterworths Data Security Law & Practice is the first guide to data security law and breach action. Its focus on the security imperative makes it uniquely practical and readily usable by in-house lawyers, security specialists and their advisors in private practice.
The book is fully up to date, covering the recent Data Handling Review and its implications for the public sector, the FSA’s stance on breach notification and its ever increasing fines, as well as the ICO’s guidance. It provides a detailed explanation of the implications for data controllers’ breach handling strategies.
The book also benefits from specialist chapters on the public and private sectors, core materials included in the appendices, such as the Data Protection Act and essential precedents such as checklists, template breach notification letters, clauses for employment and data processor contracts and a template information and communications systems security policy.
