This practical book provides a comprehensive tool to guide individuals through the jungle of data protection legislation that influences businesses and personal lives. The main aim of data protection legislation is the achievement of balance between the interests of the individual against the power of the information age. But many of these legal requirements conflict with the natural uses of IT. Written for those with little or no knowledge of the law, this accessible book approaches data protection from three angles: the context in which data protection should be viewed, the content of data protection laws, and data protection from the compliance perspective. This is a trustworthy guide to data protection law, ideal for IT professionals, data protection officers, and all businesses.
