John Skipper, PA privacy expert is quoted in the Financial Times in an article on data privacy.
The article addresses the issues around keeping personal data private within corporations and governments and how organisations may not be doing enough to protect their data.
John argues that companies should look at their data and how they are protecting it: “We have seen a marked increase in interest in privacy recently, partially triggered by the large amounts of publicity, but also because the EU regulations are on the drawing board.”
He continues to explain that this will mean a change in management attitudes to data privacy. “It was rarely a board level responsibility, but more often the responsibility of the chief information officer or the head of IT security,” he says. “But data privacy is now recognised as an important part of the relationship with customers. So it is more likely to lie with the chief operating officer, or a business director.”
