    Data Protection act - locked doors

    Hey there,

    Can anyone quote me a passage from the DPA that says that the first line of security is a locked door?

    I'm sure i've heared this somewhere before but can't for the life of me find it online.

    Cheers

    Do a lookup on each page and see if you can find that phrase!

    Not really helpful, as it could have a variety of ways of being written - such as physical security, locked environment, locked door etc... Or it might be even more vague than that, and just mentioned appropriate security.

    haha good try, already done that, hence me asking.

    Was just wondering if someone knew which section it was in without me having to read the whole blinking thing.

    Schedule I, Part I, Principle 7. Also be mindful of what's said in Schedule I, Part II, Sections 9 to 12. Section 9 being the most relevant.

  7. Thanks to Geoff from:
