The Information Commissioner’s Office is currently consulting on a new CCTV Code to replace the 2008 edition. The new code includes guidance on the use of automatic number plate recognition systems, flying drones and body worn video cameras. If you want to have your say, go to the ICO website. The consultation closes on 1 July 2014. We will let you know when the new Code is published.

Also, the ICO has recently issued updated guidance on the difference between data controllers and data processors to help organisations decide on the increasingly complex question of who has data protection responsibilities. To find out more, again, go to the ICO website.

If you have any concerns about how your business deals with data protection, then please contact me on 023 8048 2109.
