UK Government Data Handling - A Clear Direction for the Future

A large data breach incident within the last year opened the floodgates to press coverage, concern, a lack of public confidence in the government’s data handling ability and also ensured that a spotlight would shine on any other government department if and when they suffered a similar data security breach. In response, ‘The Data Handling Procedures in Government’ report (“the Report”) sets out clear and mandatory procedures to be followed by all UK government employees that have access to - and responsibility for - citizen data. Individual departments now have a responsibility to show compliance on their progress in meeting the requirements of the new Data Handling procedures and electronic data must be stored and shared in a way that ensures the protection of this information while also improving the government’s provision of services such as healthcare, benefits, child welfare and law enforcement.

In this webinar, Nigel Stanley, security practice leader at Bloor Research and Andrew Clarke, International SVP at Lumension will discuss the current data handling landscape, share an NHS case study and some recommended steps to ensuring the protection of citizens’ data, including:

  • Know Your Environment
  • Manage Known Risk
  • Prevent Unknown Threats
  • Prevent Removable Device Misuse
  • Protect Mobile Devices
