ICO needs your help

Filed under: Governance,Privacy,Standards — lenand @ 10:03 am

The Information Commissioner’s Office has launched its consultation on the Data sharing code of practice.  “This code explains how the Data Protection Act 1998 applies to the sharing of personal data. It also provides good practice advice that will be relevant to all organisations that share personal data. The code is aimed at any organisation involved in the sharing of personal data. Organisations should use this code to help them to understand how to adopt good practice. While some parts of the code are necessarily focussed on sector-specific issues, the majority of the good practice recommendations will apply to all data sharing regardless of its context and scale.”

This is a rare opportunity to communicate with the ICO directly and be fairly certain your responses will be read.  It’s everybody’s chance to ride their hobby horse. I shall have to submit my two penn’orth – probably about identity management, federation, consent, role based access, context, quality, purpose, …

I suppose these are all somewhere in my embryonic, seven dimensional, Information Governance framework.
