UK data retention requirements information data retention and disposal

Watson Hall Ltd London 020 7183 3710 Edinburgh 0131 510 2001

Each type of data within an organisation should be identified and classified. Once this has been completed and during periodic reviews, it is necessary to define the retention and disposal policy. Business data records should be assessed for the statutory and legal requirements, business and accountability requirements and the risks associated with keeping or disposing of the data records.
A records management system or schedule of data retention criteria can be used to document the data records, the requirements and the security controls needed for their identification, storage, protection, retrieval, retention and disposal. There are a large number of statutes, case law and regulations defining how long some data must be kept for before it is destroyed — some of which are outlined on the following pages. A few requirements such as records of wages apply to almost all sectors, but we have listed some specific requirements for the communications, financial and governmental sectors. Other sectors have equally important requirements. The exact minimum retention period varies with the specific data type, and the starting date is often context related e.g. period from an event like an accident, retirement or the advertisement of a product. This document is based on the previous work by InTechnology Ltd:
Making Sense of Data Law, A review by InTechnology of legislation and regulation concerning data storage in the UK and Europe InTechnology Ltd, April 2004

The chart on the next page summarises this data in the subsequent sections.

...Communities That Care system as a capacity building tool to aid in the Strategic Prevention Framework process. The Strategic Prevention Framework is a 5-step planning process that guides the selection, implementation, and evaluation of evidence-based, culturally appropriate, sustainable prevention activities. Communities That Care is a tool used to guide a community through the assessment and prioritization of risk and protective factors most in need of attention and links those priorities to evidence-based and data driven programming to address them. It is important to remember that the Communities That Care system is simply a tool to aid in building a prevention infrastructure referred to as the Strategic Prevention Framework process. Communities That Care and Strategic Prevention Framework are not programs nor are they administrative names for program implementation. They exist and work together in helping communities get organized, identify problem areas based on community data, make knowledgeable decisions pertaining to how these problems should be addressed, and evaluate any actions taken to counter the problem areas. Each phase of the Communities That Care system fits well into a coordinating phase of the Strategic Prevention Framework process, and it is clear that sustainability and cultural competency as key components to every part of building a prevention infrastructure. This report describes the results of the risk- and protective-factor assessment......

...Date: 06/27/2012 A LONG-TERM STRATEGY FOR DATA PROTECTION AND DISASTER RECOVERY FOR THE BR-DB01 MySQL DATABASE SERVER by Francis Nicholas Introduction This document discusses the recommended option for a long-term strategy for data protection and disaster recovery for the Sentrana MySQL and Infobright databases. After extensive research, the following components will provide for a long-term strategy for data protection and disaster recovery for the MySQL database server: 1. MySQL Master-Slave database server replication[1]. 2. Full daily and a full weekly backup of all databases on the master and slave servers respectively. a. Differential/incremental backups plan is currently under investigation. This is because a lot of articles I came across during my research advised against it due to the nature of its complexity and the level of difficulty in it implementation. 3. A clean up plan[3] that includes the removal of any database backups older than 7 days on the master server and 7 weeks on the slave server respectively. MySQL Master-Slave Database Server Replication The MySQL Master-Slave database server replication enables one database server, called the master, to be replicated to one or more MySQL servers, called slaves[4]. In our case, the master server will start off as the BR-DB01 database server. The server currently acting as Appserver-05 in the MarketMover environment is upgradeable to meet the present system and storage requirements......

Data Protection and Recovery

...Data Protection and Recovery. Exist several ways to protect our data such having a good firewall to prevent attacks to our network or if we are looking to for a more strong way to protect the data, why not with the server we only give access using the MAC direction, this way only local computers in the network will be capable of accessing to the information in the network, if the server doesn’t recognize the MAC address, the server won’t share the information, this is one way to protect the data and we can combine this method with any other one. Data corruption, having the data storage in any server, can cause data corruption at any time, windows server or third parties software can cause data corruption, the is no 100% method to prevent data corruption, this is why having always a backup of all information is the only way to be sure our data is safe of corruption. To be sure data can be recovery safe and quick, it will be important to have a backup server or RAID system to make sure all our data is getting duplicated, now in days, is not only safe using one method to backup that the data, I will also recommend cloud backup system, these type of backups system can cost a lot money, but data loss in any company can lead to end of any institution. My way to handle the backups will be have a central data sever, where all the information will be send, this data server will a RAID setup, where all the data will be duplicated, with the RAID system backups will complete in real......

Protection a partnershp between University of Pennsylvannia and the US government. It consisted of 18,000 vacuum tubes and 7000 resistors. It was developed by John Presper Eckert and John W. Mauchly and was a general purpose computer. "Von Neumann designed the Electronic Discrete Variable Automatic Computer (EDVAC) in 1945 with a memory to hold both a stored program as well as data." Von Neumann's computer allowed for all the computer functions to be controlled by a single source. Then in 1951 came the Universal Automatic Computer(UNIVAC I), designed by Remington rand and collectively owned by US census bureau and General Electric. UNIVAC amazingly predicted the winner of 1952, presidential elections, Dwight D. Eisenhower. In first generation computers, the operating instructions or programs were specifically built for the task for which computer was manufactured. The Machine language was the only way to tell these machines to perform the operations. There was great difficulty to program these computers ,and more when there were some malfunctions. First Generation computers used Vacuum tubes and magnetic drums(for data storage). Second Generation Computers (1956-1963) The invention of Transistors marked the start of the second generation. These transistors took place of the vacuum tubes used in the first generation computers. First large scale machines were made using these technologies to meet the requirements of atomic energy laboratories. One of the other benefits to the......

Based on the narrative, the only corrective measure the company implemented was PKI. As noted in the original evaluation, several areas need to be addressed: * Climate/culture of the organization * Employee training for social engineering attacks * Positive identification of employees when granting role-based access * Vulnerabilities within and without the network, specifically to sniffers and eavesdropping * The ease with which the employee changed his pay rate, indicating a single system used for HR profiles rather than segregated duties & systems * The PKI that was installed only addressed the HR system, rather than the entire organization Honestly, the whole environment at this company needs a complete evaluation and overhaul! 2. Outline the other attacks mentioned in the scenario that were not noticed by the organization. * Social Engineering * Sniffing/Eavesdropping * Unauthorized Privilege Escalation * Network Penetration * Spoofing a.

Hipa Protection

...HIPPA PII Protection IFSM 201 Due 04 Oct 2015 Everyone has heard about HIPPA, which is the common acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. This federal regulation has three priorities that focus on are protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of patient electronic protected health information (EPHI), guarding against reasonable possible expectable threats to the security or integrity of said EPHI, and protecting EPHI against unauthorized disclosure (National Institute of Standards and Technology, 2008) . The protection of the CIA of EPHI is important because our patients rely on this information’s accuracy and availability in emergency situations for use by medical professionals, while the confidentiality is important to ensure this personal information does not fall into the wrong hands and to ensure the patient’s civil rights are not violated. There have been many recent high level HIPPA violations recently. Some of the most damaging breaches that released the most protected personal information (PII) occurred at the Department of Veterans Affairs. In 2013 one of the largest known EPHI/PII breaches at the VA was discovered through the conduct of a thorough investigation and reported by Steven Marco of that “found there were an astounding 14,215 violations that affected 101,018 veterans and 551 VA employees at 167 facilities since 2010. These violations included using patient......

Protection to Bankers

...Protection to Bankers from disclosure of certain information to public  Banking is one of the most risky sectors as far as privacy is concerned due to the highly sensitive and personal nature of information which is often exchanged, recorded and retained. Although India has RBI guidelines and legislations to protect data, this blog post looks at the extent of those protections, and what are the areas that still need to be addressed. Introduction Banking is one of the most at risk sectors for privacy violations due to the sensitive, and highly personal nature of information that is exchanged, recorded, and retained. Individuals must trust banks with personal identifying information, their financial records, the access information to their accounts,  and their credit history. Thus, privacy violations are not taken lightly and heavily impact the individual whose privacy was violated. Ways in which a violation of privacy can take place in the banking sector include: sharing personal information with third parties without consent  for marketing purposes, stolen or lost banking number or card, sharing personal information or allowing access to third parties without informed consent, inadequate notification  to an individual concerning what will be done with their data, collecting more personal data than is necessary, refusal to provide financial records upon request by client, incorrectly recording personal information, and loss of  a clients personal data due to improper......

Morse and Field (1996) identify theorizing as the ‘sorting’ stage of data analysis where meaning is attributed to the themes which emerge from the Ó 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd, Journal of Clinical Nursing, 16, 1134–1140 Surgical nursing sorting process. Recontextualization is the final stage concentrating on the development of emergent theory based on the propositions derived from the preceding analytical process. Making patients better poorly people, but the majority of people are quite well really, they have broken bones and they get better and I think its quite easy to meet people’s outcomes on an orthopaedic ward. (IA) (Laughs) The cheeky answer is that if you get a patient you don’t like you know you’re going to get rid of them fairly soon. But I like the Findings Initial analysis of data during the theorizing stage focused on manifest analysis of the general background questions and common themes present in all interviews. This clearly established that all participants had actively chosen to work in a surgical clinical area and preferred working in this area over all other clinical areas they were familiar with, although some had experience......

Computer Protection

...many important information or data are saved in the computer. Such as your diary, the financial situation of a oil company or some secret intelligence of the military department. A lot of important information can be found in the memory of computer. So, people may ask a question: Can we make sure that the information in the computer is safe and nobody can steal it from the memory of the computer? Physical hazard is one of the causes of destroying the data in the computer. For example, send a flood of coffee toward a personal computer. The hard disk of the computer could be endangered by the flood of coffee. Besides, human caretaker of computer system can cause as much as harm as any physical hazard. For example, a cashier in a bank can transfer some money from one of his customer's account to his own account. Nonetheless, the most dangerous thief are not those who work with computer every day, but youthful amateurs who experiment at night --- the hackers. The term "hacker "may have originated at M.I.T. as students' jargon for classmates who labored nights in the computer lab. In the beginning, hackers are not so dangerous at all. They just stole computer time from the university. However, in the early 1980s, hackers became a group of criminals who steal information from other peoples' computer. For preventing the hackers and other criminals, people need to set up a good security system to protect the data in the computer.......
