Data Handling Procedures in Government: Report Published

The  Cabinet Office Final report on Data Handling Procedures across government, the Written Ministerial Statement, the Independent Review of Government Information Assurance and the  “Cross Government Actions: Mandatory Minumum Measures” are all now available on …

The Cabinet Office website at this link.

Its like buses – you wait ages for one and then a convoy comes along. 

These are almost certainly the most important Government statements of the year (perhaps the decade) for ICT suppliers and professionals, far more important in the long term that the latest multi-billion pound order.    

Please down load and read – they will take some time to digest – including the implications – I will be most interested in your comments when you have – but not before then.

P.S. In my orignal entry I forget to add a link to the HMRC review, also released yesterday.

I wonder if anyone can help me with this query! Is there a legal time limit in which government departments (such as HMRC) should keep data from customers, for example a minimum of 6 years?

Kind regards
