The ICO has published a summary of the feedback it received to its Big Data report of July 2014, highlighting some of the themes that have emerged. These include the importance of assessing and differentiating between levels of impact on individuals; the need for regulatory focus on how on how data is used, rather than on how it is collected, and the need to develop further practical measures to ensure data is stored securely. The ICO intends to re-issue the Big Data report this summer.
