The Information Commissioner’s Office (“the ICO”) has issued a guidance note on its plan to help businesses prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (“the GDPR”). The note details the priorities for the ICO and its timescales for issuing guidance over the next two years. It is essential reading for all businesses processing personal data, which should now be in the early stages of planning for the new legislation. The guidance note can be accessed here.
