Every business owner should be aware of what data protection means and how to apply the principles successfully in a business environment. You, as an employer or retailer, will almost certainly handle personal data that you need to protect and process lawfully.

There is also a right for individuals to make a ‘subject access request’ in some circumstances i.e. a request to see a copy of the personal data that you hold about them. Our information and documentation here enables you to understand what you need to do to comply with data protection provisions, including dealing with subject access requests. There’s also general guidance on monitoring employees at work.

Businesses should also be aware of what cybersecurity threats are and ideally, should have a strategy to deal with the identified risks. It’s crucial to have a management plan for when things go wrong and you to deal with incidents.
