What does this cover?

28 January 2016 marks the anniversary of the Council of Europe’s Convention 108 on the protection of personal information. Convention 108 is the basis on which European data protection law, and therefore the DPA, was developed.

By way of reflection, the ICO have posted a blog summarising the past 10 years of data protection at the ICO through quotes derived from ICO annual reports and made by previous Information Commissioner Richard Thomas and current Commissioner Christopher Graham.

What action could be taken to manage risks that may arise from this development?

None - for interest only.
