Hi, Can anyone point me in the direction of an up-to-date summary [in layman's terms] of this act? Thanks in advance

Answer Wiki

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not sure there are any in laymen’s terms, but the main page for the act can be found here: http://www.hmso.gov.uk/acts/acts1998/19980029.htm

It is fairly easy to read and is a far cry from legislation found in the US. If you will list your concerns and/or questions, maybe “we” can give you a little “non-legal advice”.

    There is a very informative Data Protection Act UK guide that highlights what the Data Protection Act is, the importance of implementing a compliance plan, news announcements and expert compliance advice. You’ll also find many other valuable resources to refer to for even more information.
