ICO joins the UK Regulators Network
The ICO has joined the UK Regulators Network (UKRN) as a full member. Joining the network provides the ICO with the unique opportunity to gain valuable insights into the issues facing regulators across the UK, inform policy debates and share experience. Membership will also support the ICO engaging with the main UK regulators on specific issues including cyber security.
James Dipple-Johnstone, Deputy Commissioner – Operations yesterday said:
“The ICO is delighted to have joined the UKRN. We look forward to working with network colleagues by sharing knowledge and best practice and identifying areas where a collaborative approach will bring benefits for consumers and the economy.
“The ICO’s priority is to work to improve information rights practice and compliance in the UK and our membership of UKRN will allow us to seek out opportunities and encourage strategic thinking with the network to promote learning, consistent guidance and standards.”
Jonathan Oxley, CEO of UKRN, yesterday said:
“We are delighted to be welcoming the ICO as a member. Collaboration is at the heart of the UKRN, and we look forward to working with the ICO to bring the benefits of data to consumers, while ensuring they remain protected.”
The UKRN brings together regulators from the UK’s utility, financial and transport sectors for the benefit of consumers and the economy. Established in 2014, the network works together to share knowledge, explore cross cutting issues and build better ways of working.
