Data Protection developments

On 2 June (sorry, it's taken me a while to get there) the British Standards Institute published the first version of its BS10012:2009 - Data Protection: Specification for a Personal Information Management System.  It seems to be a step in the right direction, but far from a complete answer to data controllers'  needs in this area.

The Information Commissioner's Office has also published a new code of practice on privacy notices (link to press release here and to the privacy notices page on the ICO's site here).  The Office, it says, wants to see an end to the confusing privacy notices that are written to protect organisations rather than to inform the public.
