Re: Does there need to be an obligation to "encrypt" ?

I was about to make a similar point. If you're predominantly a paper-based organisation, it might be acceptable to store your sensitive documents at the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying beware of the leopard. However, if you have electronic data on 400,000 people who have recently undergone credit checks it's hard to imagine any effective technical measure that did not include encryption.
