Our data privacy is at an ever increasing risk

Tony Porter, Surveillance Camera Commissioner (SCC), and Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner, have published a revised memorandum of understanding.

The memorandum is a statement of intent that has at its heart, the protection of the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens in respect of their privacy, the protection of their personal information and also the public interest which arises when balancing those considerations against a legitimate duty to protect communities, where it is necessary to do so.

In addition’ the ICO’s series of blogs continues to sort the fact from the fiction by busting some of the myths around the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
