Last year we began taking action against organisations for non-payment of the data protection fee, sending out a clear message that those who didn’t pay risked a fine.

Today the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is launching the ‘Be Data Aware’ campaign to help people understand how organisations might be using their data to target them online, and how people can control who is targeting them.
The ICO has fined a PPI claims management company £120,000 for sending unlawful spam texts about its services.
An ICO investigation into HMRC’s Voice ID service was prompted by a complaint from Big Brother Watch about the department’s conduct.
One topic that doesn't get talked about enough is the ability to justify a decision made by AI. Worth reading the ICO's view...:
Continuing our AI auditing framework blog series , Reuben Binns, our Research Fellow in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Valeria Gallo, Technology Policy Adviser, explore how the data protection principle of accuracy applies to AI systems, and propose some steps organisations should take to ensure compliance.
The ICO clarifies its position on journalism...:
Privacy and freedom of expression are both fundamental rights that are equally vital to our society, democracy and way of life. But they can sometimes appear to be in conflict with each other. Our data protection laws aim to reconcile these rights and achieve a crucial balance. But it is important that those organisations engaged in journalism know how to apply the requirements and exemptions in practice.
