The Data Protection Act - ITIL
ITIL is short for the 'IT Infrastructure Library'. It is basically a set of books which define how IT related services should be delivered and supported.
As such the link with the Data Protection Act is that it defines the 'proper' management of data in the IT environment. Many organisations are embracing ITIL to address a wide range of management issues, including adherence to legislation.
