The introduction of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 imposes a number of requirements for transparency and
openness regarding information held by private and public organisations.
The role of Information Technology is of paramount importance in order to
improve compliance and minimise the consequences of both legal frameworks.
Interest in the technological implications of Data Protection and Freedom
of Information compliance is beginning to gain momentum. It is accepted
that there is great potential to harness the technology effectively to
provide real benefits in the way organisations deal with the information
management challenges posed by the new legislation. This will be the
first email list dedicated exclusively to technological issues regarding
Data Protection and Freedom of Information compliance. The existing lists
do not deal with such issues.
