ICO Releases Three-Year Plan

The British Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has released a corporate plan designed to guide its functions for the next three years. The Corporate Plan 2008-2011 outlines the ICO's direction in four major focus areas: educating and influencing; resolving problems; enforcing; and developing and improving.

"Data protection and privacy have never been so important to individuals," wrote Commissioner Richard Thomas in a letter introducing the plan. "We aim to be a strategic regulator, making the best use of resources by taking selective action where we can make the biggest difference."
