Why do I need to be careful when handling personal data?

Everyone in NES is responsible for ensuring that personal data about individuals is only held when truly necessary for our business requirements, is protected from inappropriate disclosure or sharing, and is not held any longer than necessary. NES has a Data Protection Procedure related to the Information Governance policy with which all NES employees must comply.
