Elizabeth Denham, the UK’s Information Commissioner since July 2016, has published her first annual report, the ICO’s annual report for 2016/2017. The report details the year’s major achievements and work undertaken. In particular, it focuses on the Information Commissioner’s Office’s (ICO) preparation for the GDPR coming into force on 25 May 2018. To tackle this new legislation, the ICO (i) has contributed to the work of the Article 29 Working Party, (ii) has published detailed guidance on the GDPR, including draft guidance on consent and (iii) expects to publish finalised guidance on consent later in 2017 to enable businesses and other organisations to prepare for the new standard of consent in good time before 25 May 2018.
