Technical & Legal Support
Security issues such as identity theft, corporate espionage, and information leaks are becoming increasingly common for businesses and individuals alike. Protection of your confidentiality and security is the chief concern of CCS (Cork) and our services ensure that you are compliant with current privacy and data protection laws. CCS (Cork) is happy to keep you up-to-date with data protection legislation and how it relates to your confidential document destruction methods. Below is a basic summary and links to further information relating to data protection.
Data Protection ActsThe Data Protection Act 1988 is the principal Irish law relating to data protection. This act was amended by the Data Protection (Amendment) Act 2003 which brought our law in line with the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. In short, the acts outline how you, the data controller, are responsible for keeping confidential information secure and furthermore, how you are legally bound to dispose of data in a secure method that prevents unauthorised access or loss of that material.
Guides for Data ControllersThere is an introductory guide for data controllers on the Data Protection Commissioner's website. It outlines the eight fundamental rules of data protection and is intended as a non-technical guide for data controllers.
Rule 4 states 'Keep Data Safe & Secure':
"Appropriate security measures must be taken against unauthorised access to, or alteration, disclosure or destruction of, the data and against their accidental loss or destruction. A minimum standard of security would include ... all waste papers, printouts, etc. to be disposed of carefully;"
