Session to Provide Strategies for Keeping the Information Commissioner at Bay
London, UK; 4 October 2011 – The increasing amount of personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) collected and utilised by government organisations presents new opportunities for collaboration, but also poses significant risk. The wrath of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and penalties associated with breaches of the Data Protection Act can be severe, and all government agencies should mitigate their risk of exposure.
“Keeping the Information Commissioner at Bay: How to protect your organisation from content breaches,” an E-Government Bulletin webinar sponsored by HiSoftware, will be a live, one-hour interactive discussion reviewing some of the most significant breaches of data privacy by local authorities and other public bodies that have incurred the displeasure of ICO.
The webinar will examine the background and causes in each case, and the financial penalties each organisation incurred. HiSoftware’s Managing Director of International, George Knox, and Chief Technology Officer Thomas Logan will provide insight into these breaches and how each may have been prevented, as well as offer solutions and tips on how to avoid these costly pitfalls and stay on the right side of the law.
“This is a timely event, taking place just as the Information Commissioner is taking more and more severe action against public bodies,” said E-Government Bulletin Editor Dan Jellinek. “At a time when budgets are so tight, organisations can ill afford to be paying out heavy fines for non-compliance with data protection and privacy law.”
