The ICO launches an online guide to data protection
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has launched an online guide aimed at helping business, charities and public bodies ensure that they manage data securely. The personal information online code of practice has been launched following an extensive consultation process. The code explains to organisations how the Data Protection Act applies to the collection and use of personal data online.
The Personal Information Online Code of Practice also aims to provide tips allowing consumers to make an informed choice about whether they sign up for a particular online service.
