The ICO has published the Information Rights Strategic Plan 2017-2021, which aims to to increase the confidence that the public has in the government, public bodies and the private sector in relation to the use and processing of their personal data. The five strategic goals contained in the plan are: (i) to increase the public's trust and confidence in how data is used and made available; (ii) to improve standards of information rights practice through clear, inspiring and targeted engagement and influence; (iii) to maintain and develop influence within the global information rights regulatory community; (iv) to stay relevant, provide excellent public service and keep abreast of evolving technology; and (v) to enforce the laws we help shape and oversee. The plan also states that the ICO is expected to be confirmed as the UK's supervisory authority under the package of EU data protection reforms.
