    Think this through in parts. Think of what a business document is, and how it might be produced and stored.

    Now imagine that you have a secretary for the business who commutes by train. They take some business documents on the train with them one morning to read over. Unfortunately, the train is delayed, and in a rush they leave the documents on the train. Would could now happen to the documents? Would this be a security issue?
    Hopefully, you've realised that someone could pick up the documents and do what they like with them. So a security requirement might be that business documents might not be allowed out of the office. This might then affect the production of documents because printing might be restricted, or certain sensitive information might not be released to staff that don't need to see it.

    Now, think about data protection. What is data protection? What would happen if the same member of staff left a USB stick of customer address information on the train? So what might a requirement of data protection be? USB sticks might need to be password protected or encrypted. So how would this affect production of business documents?

    Intellectual property legislation: This term blanket or umbrella is used to describe Intellectual Property Rights, in which original creations, invention, literary, names, images and the rights of their creators are protected. In some cases, IP rights are automatic whilst some have to register it. The basic idea is to ensure that a creation is not copied or used without permission and protected.CopyrightCopyright protects the written or recorded work. Without taking permission, no one can access it. Any written, design, musical or artistic work can be protected by copyright, typically the work will be protected for 70 years and more.
