UK data retention requirements
The United Kingdom's statutes, case law and regulations define how long information must be kept before it is destroyed. Watson Hall Ltd has researched and updated a summary of the data retention requirements as an aid to defining polices for data collection, retention and disposal.
Whilst data collection requirements often feature in website and web application requirements, data classification and assessment are required to determine how these data are managed through their life, including identification, storage, protection, retrieval, retention and disposal.
