The ICO has published its corporate plan which sets out the ICO’s priorities for 2015 -2018. The priorities include preparing for a period of substantial change with the implementation of a new EU data protection framework and the outcome of the Ministry of Justice’s Triennial Review; developing and promoting an ICO privacy seal scheme as a means of demonstrating a commitment to good data protection practices; and engaging with transparency and Open Data initiatives to ensure a balanced information rights perspective.
