Data Protection Policy

Ooh, suits you, sir! Suits you, madam!

But rarely if you’ve settled on a template for your data protection policy…

Off the peg or made to measure?

Simple and generic or detailed and specific?

Most of us love a bargain, especially when it’s just what we were after. But how often does that happen?

What Is a Data Leak and How Do They Happen?
