The ICO publishes Guide to the General Data Protection Regulation
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has replaced its Overview of the General Data Protection Regulation with a 58-page “Guide to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)”. The Guide contains very similar content to the Overview, but it now includes expanded sections on “Consent” and on “Contracts” on the basis of the guidance on these topics which it has previously published for consultation.The ICO also makes clear that this Guide to the GDPR “is not yet a finished product; it is a framework on which we will build upcoming GDPR guidance and it reflects how future GDPR guidance will be presented. We will be publishing more detailed guidance on some topics and we will link to these from the Guide. We will do the same for guidelines from the Article 29 Working Party”.
