The Information Commissioner’s Office published their latest annual report on 1 July 2015. In the report, Information Commissioner Christopher Graham points to the strengthening of his regulatory powers to show how data protection legislation continues to develop. The report focuses on what the ICO has achieved in the past year, including being given powers to compulsorily audit NHS bodies for their data handling, making it an offence to force a potential employee to make a subject access request and changing the law to make it easier to issue fines to companies behind nuisance calls and texts.
