Keep clients and ourselves out of jail!

Am I reading this right? Can our clients' directors go to jail over personal data loss? Let's run a public event on the subject.

Quote from Computing Magazine's website - "Recently there have been several high-profile incidents where various public and private sector organisations have failed to take the appropriate steps to comply with the seventh principle to the Act, which states that: “Appropriate technical and organisational measures shall be taken against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.”

Yes this is certainly an issue, and worth discussing at a seminar... I am trying to get a legal seminar together with a local law company, so we could cover this as well..
