Small Business Data Protection Initiative Supported by Symantec

Symantec : 23 March, 2010  (Company News)
The Department for Business Innovation and Skills' initiative to improve data protection levels in the UK's small business community is a move welcomed by Symantec
Symantec has lent its support to an announcement from the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) of the need for Government to help small businesses with data challenges. In the BIS report entitled Professional and Business Services: A 2020 Vision for Growth it highlights the need to establish a framework regarding the ownership of personal data and the contractual arrangements relating to how it may be used.

Ross Walker, head of small business at Symantec comments: "Symantec welcomes the initial findings of this report and its recognition of the significant challenges that the small business sector is facing when it comes to the use and protection of personal data. However, we call on the Government to work with security experts when it comes to drawing up the framework. There is already significant legislation such as the Data Protection Act and it is important that any new framework complements this and helps small business to meet and understand their commitments regarding the protection and security of personal data."
