New data protection advice service from ICO

New data protection advice service from ICO The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) launched a dedicated advice line on Wednesday 1 November to help small organisations prepare for the new data protection law.

The phone service is aimed at people running small businesses or charities and recognises the particular problems they face getting ready for the new law, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Act and comes into force on 25 May 2018.
