Data Protection law does not prevent information sharing to save lives and stop crime

Steve Wood of the ICO reminds public and private organisations that new data protection legislation does not stop them from disclosing personal data to assist police forces or other law enforcement authorities.

It's nearly eleven months since the UK's new data protection legislation came into effect, giving organisations more responsibilities and giving citizens strengthened rights. In terms of data sharing the message is also one of continuity as the core considerations that existed under the previous legislation remain the same.

Hanwha Techwin GDPR blog

Uri-Guterman.jpgUri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe, explains how system integrators can help their end-user clients comply with GDPR by 'de-identifying' recorded video.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has spurred companies and organisations in all market sectors to address how they record, store and protect customer related data since it came into force a year ago. This is perhaps not surprising as a serious violation of GDPR could be subject to a fine of up to 4% of a company's annual revenue or EUR 20 million, whichever is higher. In addition, non-compliance with GDPR violation could result in a class action or a civil law suit against individuals.
