What's a Dremel?

djellison has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
I've recently done a review of what the DPA means for our company (medical education). It's a damn nightmare. There are not specific rules - just 'guidelines'. It's so damn fluffy and non specific. Furthermore, a problem I've come across a lot is the data you have to look after is often incorrect through no fault of your own. Customers (or in my specific case doctors and patients) often fill out forms incorrectly, or fill them out so badly you can't read them.

I maintain one very simple rule for all data protection rules. What do we have to do, to make sure we never appear on the front page of the Daily Mail. Can't go wrong with that.

i dont think personal data should be stored on portable devices, especially as remote access is possible via virtual private networks.
