Employers and payroll outsourcers need to take information security seriously.
The Information Commissioners Office has a wide range of powers at its disposal to enforce the Data Protection Act 1998. These range from assessments and enforcement notices through to fines of up to £500,000.
No business can afford to ignore the financial and legal consequences of a breach in the security of the information it keeps, nor the impact upon its reputation amongst customers, suppliers, employees and the wider business community, particularly given the spread of Cloud Computing.
