    I've started my unit and I've answered most of the questions but this one I left and now I'm back to it and still a bit stuck with it, been looking on Google but if someone could just simplify and kind of break it down a bit, a little push for me it would be really appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Q: Explain how the requirements of security, data protection, copyright and intellectual property legislation may affect the production of business documents

    It's just to see if I'm actually writing about what the question has asked me, I'm not very good with stuff like this

    This is what I have so far:

    We have so much personal data of clients here in the office so we have to be very careful not to leave anything lying around or up on the computer screens as, if we have a visitor they may see something that they are not supposed to see which could lead to something bad such as they could repeat it to someone else or if they know that person they might discuss what they seen about them and that will get us into deep trouble also with the law as we have to protect all personal data we have on clients. We all have passwords to get onto our computers and usually lock them if we leave the desk also all of our filing cabinets get locked up at the end of the day so if there were to be any break ins they wouldn’t be able to get in to see any personal data, our filing cabinets are also fireproof so no important information will be lost in case of a fire.

    I think I have done it completely wrong as I have just scrolled down and realised 2.1 question is
    Explain how the requirements of security, data protection, copyright and intellectual property legislation may affect the distribution and storage of business documents.

    I think I may have answered 1.5 the way I should have answered 2.1

    You've done really well on explaining what you do. But you need to explain the requirements, which means you have to explain why data protection means you need to do these things. So the Data Protection Act says you're not allowed to give information out. Have a look at this Act to see exactly what is required - what is covered by the Act, what kinds of information must be protected, are there any specific recommendations in the act about how data should be stored? The Act itself is very long and difficult to read, but you will find information pages that present the Act in a more readable format.

    I'm not sure which questions 1.5 and 2.1 are just by referring to them as numbers, sorry.

    It's fine to ask for help here if you're just stuck on one question, or if you have some idea where to go but need a pointer. But if you're stuck on a whole unit, you should go back to your tutor and see if they can explain. Nobody here is going to do your whole unit for you.
