The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has issued a set of priorities to assist businesses in preparing for the impending EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The ICO has split its guidance into three phases. Phase 1, Familiarisation and Key Building Blocks, focuses on helping businesses understand the differences between the EU Data Protection Directive and the GDPR. Phase 2, Guidance Structure and Mapping, Process Review and Associated Tools, and Phase 3, Bulk Guidance Refresh/Production and Review, will be published closer to the implementation deadline.
