‘The Data Handling Procedures in Government’ report (“the Report”) sets out clear and mandatory procedures to be followed by all UK government employees that have access to - and responsibility for - citizen data.
Individual departments, as of June 2008, have a responsiblility to show compliance on their progress in meeting the requirements of the new Data Handling procedures, including enforcing policies to manage the use of removable media and to encrypt laptops and USB memory sticks. Electronic data must be stored and shared in a way that ensures the protection of this information while also improving the government’s provision of services such as healthcare, benefits, child welfare and law enforcement.
