Abstract

We conducted an analysis of Data Protection Act awareness for the London Borough of Merton. This Act ensures proper storage and use of citizens' private information. We interviewed managers and surveyed employees about awareness of the Data Protection Act, as well as methods for educating personnel. Results showed that most employees were generally aware of the act, but not of specific regulations. From the gathered data, we formulated recommendations for general and departmental training plans.
