    Computer security, legal requirements etc. (PC 1c)

    DB Synthetics plc have identified that employees need guidance on how to handle the various situations where the law might be broken or confidentiality betrayed. It has been decided that a code of practice for their information systems staff would be useful. This is to provide them with outline practices and procedures for dealing with matters concerning security, confidentiality, legal requirements and general integrity of data under their stewardship . given the attached skeleton outline you have been asked to develop a first-cut code of practice. For some suggestions as to contents obtain and read the sample corporate policy statement of FAST, course notes/handouts on computer law (Data Protection Act, Software copyright, Computer Misuse etc.), course notes/handouts on computer security and course notes/handouts on data controls and system controls. Also of some use might be the computer lab rules – a copy of which is posted in each computer lab
