Data Protection in DIT
Data Protection is the safeguarding of the privacy rights of individuals in relation to the processing of personal data, in both paper and electronic format. The Data Protection Acts, 1988 and 2003 lay down strict rules about the way in which personal data are collected, accessed, used and disclosed. The legislation also permits individuals to access their personal data on request, and confers on individuals the right to have their personal data amended if found to be incorrect.
