5 tips for confidential data management

Here are 5 quick tips to help you manage confidential data:

  1. Clearly define what ‘confidential data’ means within your organisation and remember that it can be held on paper or electronic media.
  2. Assess the risk to the organisation if such data falls into the wrong hands. This might be anything from mild embarrassment to severe financial penalties, and, potentially, criminal proceedings.
  3. Establish a clear policy of how such data should be treated and ensure that the necessary measures and resources are put in place to facilitate its implementation.
  4. Make certain that everyone in your organisation is aware of their responsibilities under this policy.
  5. Allocate responsibility for data destruction to a single person who will formalise and manage procedures, and liaise with appointed external service providers.
