...W A T S O N H A L L UK data retention requirements information data retention and disposal Watson Hall Ltd London 020 7183 3710 Edinburgh 0131 510 2001 Each type of data within an organisation should be identified and classified. Once this has been completed and during periodic reviews, it is necessary to define the retention and disposal policy. Business data records should be assessed for the statutory and legal requirements, business and accountability requirements and the risks associated with keeping or disposing of the data records. A records management system or schedule of data retention criteria can be used to document the data records, the requirements and the security controls needed for their identification, storage, protection, retrieval, retention and disposal. There are a large number of statutes, case law and regulations defining how long some data must be kept for before it is destroyed — some of which are outlined on the following pages. A few requirements such as records of wages apply to almost all sectors, but we have listed some specific requirements for the communications, financial and governmental sectors. Other sectors have equally important requirements. The exact minimum retention period varies with the specific data type, and the starting date is often context related e.g. period from an event like an accident, retirement or the advertisement of a product. This document is based on the previous...

Consumer Protection

...Term of “Consumer Protection” can be used to describe rules of law which recognize the bargaining weakness of the individual consumer and which ensure that weakness is not unfairly exploited. The growth of vast national and international companies and the standardization of their methods of production and distribution have led to an increased awareness for consumer protection. A responsible consumer is a consumer who is aware of his rights as a consumer, and act judiciously or wisely and with full responsibility. Some of the key consumer rights are : i. The consumer has the rights to obtain fundamental goods and services to guarantee a satisfactory life in today’s modern world. These fundamental needs include safe and sufficient food supply, clothes, housing, health facility and education. ii. The consumer is protected from the processing and marketing of goods as well as services, which can be harmful. iii. The consumer must be provided with sufficient, accurate and precise information to assist him in making the right decision.

Data Protection and Recovery

...Data Protection and Recovery. Exist several ways to protect our data such having a good firewall to prevent attacks to our network or if we are looking to for a more strong way to protect the data, why not with the server we only give access using the MAC direction, this way only local computers in the network will be capable of accessing to the information in the network, if the server doesn’t recognize the MAC address, the server won’t share the information, this is one way to protect the data and we can combine this method with any other one. Data corruption, having the data storage in any server, can cause data corruption at any time, windows server or third parties software can cause data corruption, the is no 100% method to prevent data corruption, this is why having always a backup of all information is the only way to be sure our data is safe of corruption. To be sure data can be recovery safe and quick, it will be important to have a backup server or RAID system to make sure all our data is getting duplicated, now in days, is not only safe using one method to backup that the data, I will also recommend cloud backup system, these type of backups system can cost a lot money, but data loss in any company can lead to end of any institution. My way to handle the backups will be have a central data sever, where all the information will be send, this data server will a RAID setup, where all the data will be duplicated, with the RAID system backups will complete in real......

...FXT2 Task 2 Follow-Up re: Human Resources Data Modification 1. Identify areas that were not addressed by the IT staff’s response to the incident. Based on the narrative, the only corrective measure the company implemented was PKI. As noted in the original evaluation, several areas need to be addressed: * Climate/culture of the organization * Employee training for social engineering attacks * Positive identification of employees when granting role-based access * Vulnerabilities within and without the network, specifically to sniffers and eavesdropping * The ease with which the employee changed his pay rate, indicating a single system used for HR profiles rather than segregated duties & systems * The PKI that was installed only addressed the HR system, rather than the entire organization Honestly, the whole environment at this company needs a complete evaluation and overhaul! 2. Outline the other attacks mentioned in the scenario that were not noticed by the organization. * Social Engineering * Sniffing/Eavesdropping * Unauthorized Privilege Escalation * Network Penetration * Spoofing a. Describe the nature of the attacks not noticed by the organization.

...Data Collection - Ballard Integrated Managed Services, Inc. (BIMS) Learning Team C QNT/351 September 22, 2015 Michael Smith Data Collection - Ballard Integrated Managed Services, Inc. (BIMS) Identify types of data collected--quantitative, qualitative, or both--and how the data is collected. A survey was sent out to all the employees’ two paychecks prior and a notice to complete the survey was included with their most recent paychecks. After reviewing the surveys that have been returned it was found that the data collected is both quantitative and qualitative. Questions one thru ten are considered qualitative data because the response for those questions are numbered from one (very negative) to five (very positive), which are measurements that cannot be measured on a natural numerical scale. They can only be classified or grouped into one of the categories and are simply selected numerical codes. Then, questions A-D could fall under quantitative data because it can determine the number of employees in each department, whether they are male or female and amount of time employed with the company. From that data it is able to find an average of time employed, then subcategorize by department, gender and if they are a supervisor or manager. Identify the level of measurement for each of the variables involved in the study. For qualitative variable there are a couple levels of measurements. Questions A, C, and D in Exhibit A fall in nominal-level data because when...

...Introduction to the HR area being investigated Over the past few years, my organisation has had a reluctance to recruit permanent labour. To combat this, for every permanent member of staff that leaves, either due to ill health, age or other governing reasons, we are instructed to backfill with temporary labour. The collated data is being used to investigate the effect of this shift in labour pattern, paying particular attention to staff retention. The table below gives a month by month record of how many staff have been employed, temporary and permanent , how many temporary staff are left at the end of each month compared to how many are left that are on a permanent contract. Month | Temporary staff | permanent staff | total | permanent leavers | Temporary leavers | total leavers | Jan-15 | 166 | 359 | 525 | 7 | 2 | 9 | Feb-15 | 181 | 344 | 525 | 15 | 5 | 20 | Mar-15 | 181 | 344 | 525 | 0 | 7 | 7 | Apr-15 | 204 | 321 | 525 | 23 | 7 | 30 | May-15 | 235 | 290 | 525 | 31 | 12 | 43 | Jun-15 | 238 | 287 | 525 | 3 | 17 | 20 | Jul-15 | 250 | 275 | 525 | 12 | 42 | 54 | Aug-15 | 267 | 258 | 525 | 17 | 23 | 40 | Sep-15 | 277 | 248 | 525 | 10 | 27 | 37 | Oct-15 | 286 | 239 | 525 | 9 | 30 | 39 | Nov-15 | 288 | 237 | 525 | 2 | 34 | 36 | Dec-15 | 304 | 221 | 525 | 16 | 45 | 61 | Jan-16 | 305 | 220 | 525 | 1 | 53 | 54 | Feb-16 | 308 | 217 | 525 | 3 | 57 | 60 | An explanation of how I analysed and interpreted the data To make a comparison...
