UK privacy

The U.K.’s data regulator published guidance setting out how it decides to issue penalties against companies and calculate fines.

Last week, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) issued its updated data protection fining guidance to provide companies with greater transparency and clarity about how and why the regulator would administer penalties for a breach of the U.K. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or Data Protection Act 2018.

The last time the ICO issued details about how it intended to rap companies for data protection and privacy breaches came in November 2018, six months after the European Union’s GDPR came into force.
