Datonomy is pleased to learn that the ICO’s 2010/2011 Annual Report will be launched via webcast tomorrow. In addition, the ICO is inviting the submission of questions to the Commissioner by email in advance of tomorrow’s launch.
Tune in to the Annual Report section of the ICO’s website at this link at 2.30pm on Wednesday 6 July (where it will also remain available on catch up).
You are encouraged to email the Commissioner at the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org to pose all those (data protection) questions you’ve always wondered about, but were afraid to ask. (But be aware that all questions and answers will also be published on the ICO’s website.)
The Annual Report is always a must-read for UK data protection practitioners – not so much for the details of the ICO’s balance sheet – although Datonomy is of course curious to see what impact tiered notification fees and the introduction of civil monetary penalties have had on the regulator’s finances of late. This Datonomist will be turning eagerly to the sections which give insight into the ICO’s enforcement priorities for the year ahead, and, of course details of those organisations who have fallen foul of the rules in recent months.
For those readers who are too busy to watch the webcast or read the report in full, Datonomy will be bringing you selected highlights.
