ICO Launches Code for Sharing Personal Data
PRIVACY LAW—UKMay 12, 2011
The Information Commissioner's Office has launched a code of practice aimed at guiding private- and public-sector companies on data protection when it comes to legally sharing personal information, reports V3.co.uk. The code of practice, which incorporates input solicited during the consultation period, can be applied in all sectors, said Information Commissioner Christopher Graham. "...We can be confident that it not only makes sense on paper but will work in the real world," he said. "I would encourage all businesses and public bodies that share personal data to get to grips with the code without delay so they can be sure they are getting it right."
