Data centre compliance health-check, November 2017

Data centre operators struggle to keep abreast of the alphabet soup of regulatory obligations placed upon them. Compliance, however, is not optional and ignorance of the law is not viewed as an acceptable excuse by regulators. So this complexity is worrying, especially where the reputational risk or penalties are severe. The attached document includes some legislation that tends to catch out operators from time to time. If any of these instruments are new to you then they might merit closer examination.

If you are aware of other potential compliance issues not identified below, please feel free to flag them to emma.fryer@techuk.org and we will pick them up in our next health-check. We already have a couple of potential candidates to add to the list!
