Data Protection
Where to start - how to assess how prepared your organisation is and where the key gaps in preparations currently exist; Preparing your information - do you really know what information you hold and create, and where the risks of FOI lie? ; Procedures for release and audit trails - guidance on how to make information available and prove compliance; Exemption policies - formulating policies and deciding how they will be consistently interpreted and applied across the organisation. Includes a section on how FOI relates to data protection; Training and organisational benefits - the need for a strategic, organisational approach to information management. Evaluating success - the true implications of the Acts are largely unknown; therefore it will be essential that organisations remain flexible to meet the changing needs of the general public once the Acts come fully into force
