Building on the Government's confirmation last week (24th October) that, notwithstanding Brexit, the UK will be implementing the General Data Protection Regulation in 2018, the ICO has now confirmed how it will be supporting businesses through the changes.

Representing the first wholesale review of the data protection laws since 1998, the GDPR is clearly something that businesses need to be (and will be) preparing for.

Expect more guidance from the ICO over the coming months as it aims to set out its approach and expectations ahead of 2018.
