How would you respond to a freedom of information request, whilst ensuring compliance with the Data Protection Act? Get clear and practical guidance on this key data governance issue! Freedom of information is often mentioned in the same breath as data protection. In fact, the legal position is more complicated. Whereas data protection is about protecting individuals, freedom of information is about open government. The Data Protection Act is mainly concerned with the confidentiality and security of information, but the purpose of the Freedom of Information Act is to encourage the disclosure of information. Nevertheless, the Data Protection Act does permit 'subject access', whereby an individual can obtain a copy of the information held about them; it is at this point that the two pieces of legislation overlap. This authoritative pocket guide is designed to help information professionals, particularly in the public sector, understand the requirements of both Acts together with the ways in which they intersect. The guide looks at the restrictions on disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, including the circumstances in which a request under the Freedom of Information Act must be declined, so as to protect personal data. The pocket guide also considers situations where disclosure of information about individuals under the Freedom of Information Act would not be in breach of the Data Protection Act because of the public interest in such disclosure. Benefits to data governance professionals include: ·Find out how the Freedom of Information Act can be reconciled with the Data Protection Act The pocket guide sheds light on the question of when data has to be released under the Freedom of Information Act, and when data has to be kept confidential under the Data Protection Act ·Understand the legal requirements of a request under the Freedom of Information Act Public bodies have a duty to help people obtain the information they seek. The pocket guide outlines the correct procedure for a public authority to follow when responding to a written request for information. ·Find out what is meant by 'personal data' Under the Data Protection Act, personal data is exempt from disclosure if such disclosure would result in a breach of any of the data protection principles. The pocket guide offers an expert definition of personal data for purposes of the Act. ·Understand the legal requirements of a subject access request under the Data Protection Act Under the Data Protection Act, the subject of the data has the right to see the information held about them. The pocket guide explains the correct procedure for handling a subject access request.

Book Description IT Governance Publishing, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. New ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Freedom of Information Act (FOI) was a milestone in UK legislation and, for the first time, the lid was legally lifted on a lot of what the UK government was doing in the name of the citizens of the country. While the FOI applies only to public sector organisations, it covers a wide range of information. The Data Protection Act, which applies equally in both the public and private sector, had already given individuals the right to find out what information was being held about them, and to insist on having that information kept accurate and up to date. Of course, the Data Protection Act also placed an obligation on organisations to protect the personal data of those people about whom they collected this information and to ensure that this data was not disclosed, either deliberately or accidentally, to anyone not entitled to see it. Clear and practical guidance for data governance professionals Inevitably, information that could and should be disclosed pursuant to a freedom of information enquiry could quite conceivably also contain information that the data controller must protect and herein lies a challenge for those in the public sector. Data management frameworks must be designed with two apparently contradictory objectives in mind: ensuring that information that might have to be disclosed pursuant to an FOI enquiry can quickly be found and provided, while simultaneously ensuring that personal data that has to be protected remains protected. This is a key data governance issue and, until now, there has been little useful guidance on how to tackle this issue for those charged with designing processes and infrastructure that meets these two sets of legal requirements. This pocket guide focuses on and addresses this critical issue, providing clear and practical guidance for data governance professionals on how to resolve this conundrum.
