April e-newsletter out now

Welcome from the Information CommissionerApril e-newsletter out now

It was so good to see around 800 of you at our conference this week, with many more joining in through our live stream.

It’s been an eventful few weeks. It’s been hard to miss the expose of Cambridge Analytica’s alleged use of personal data in election campaigns including information gathered from Facebook.

It’s worth remembering that this is one part of our larger investigation into the use of personal data analytics for political purposes by political campaigns, parties, social media companies and others. You can read more on that below.

If that wasn’t interesting enough, the GDPR is now a mere 30 working days away. We’ve provided a whole suite of resources on our website – our Guide to the GDPR is the place to find guidance that is, as you would expect of the ICO, accurate, authoritative and accessible. You’ll also find interactive toolkits, handy checklists and sector-specific FAQs based on real queries received by our customer contact team.

We want you to feel prepared, equipped and excited about the GDPR. I know many of you do. For those that still feel there is work to be done – and there are many of those too – I want to reassure you that there is no deadline.

25 May is not the end. It is the beginning.
