Data Protection

"We have engaged highly regarded contractors and security experts to ensure that we comply with data protection legislation."

"We are looking to remove the ability for our managers to see data that is not directly relevant to their role"

Someone needs to re-read the basics of UK data protection law: ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/data-protection-principles/ - and fire their consultants.

Proper access control is a fundamental part of data protection and should have been baked in at the drawing board.
