Ireland's Data Protection Commission released guidance to help data controllers ensure they meet security obligations for the personal data they process. The guidance covers access controls, encryption, incident response plans, disposal of equipment and portable devices. “This large increase in the quantity of personal data processed and held gives rise to security challenges for the organisations that collect the data,” the guidance states. “Data controllers need to regularly audit their holdings of personal data and the procedures they have in place to protect this data.”
