Data protection

The Criminal Justice Justice and Immigration Act has received Royal Assent. Why does this matter? Because it gives the Information Commissioners Office new powers to fine organisations that deliberately or recklessly abuse the Data Protection Act. ICO representatives have been talking a much tougher story recently, so let’s hope that they’re prepared to follow through with rigourous action against offenders. The acid test will be whether they’re prepared to fine public authorities who fail to look after personal information.
