On 14 July 2022, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) has launched a public consultation on its draft strategic three year plan, titled “ICO25”. The plan sets out a commitment to safeguard the information rights of the most vulnerable individuals with the aim of empowering people to confidently share their information to use today’s market products and services, with work particularly targeting:
- children’s privacy;
- AI-driven discrimination;
- the use of algorithms within the benefits system; and
- the impact of predatory marketing calls.
