The ICO have prepared a paper to provoke discussion and debate surrounding what the UK general public want in relation to data protection rights and, equally, their expectations of data protection authorities. The paper identifies recurring themes concerning public perception of data protection, for example, control and security of personal data and specific rights of access and deletion of data. The paper also identifies independence, consistency and enforcement  as common themes of what the public want from data protection authorities. protection-rights-what-the-public-want-and-what-the-public-want- from-data-protection-authorities.pdf
