The growth in applications to reduce daily processes to automated functions is exponential. Paying for parking; setting up digital TV recording at home; buying theatre tickets; updating corporate sales systems – these are now regularly delivered through software on handheld digital devices, often mobile phones.
According to research firm IDC, 1,200 exabytes of digital data will be generated this year. Companies that gather and store data – referred to as data controllers – now have to secure increasingly vast amounts of information.
Under last week's changes made to the Data Protection Act, individuals can only claim financial compensation if they can prove financial loss from a data breach. This is incredibly difficult and provides no route for compensation for distress caused by data privacy attacks. Today, no suitable route exists for individuals to hold data controllers to account. This means they have to rely on the regulator, the Office of the Information Commissioner (ICO), to seek redress.
As to secure digital data breach, consumers should remove the sim and memory cards before sending mobile phones for recycling. Mobile phones should be made free from personal data before recycling.
