The ICO have opened an online forum for businesses, organisations and people to provide feedback on ways to improve the services they offer.

The Information Commissioner has announced a “major listening exercise” in order to obtain views directly from businesses, organisations and people about their experience working with the ICO. The aim of this exercise is to find ways to improve the service the ICO offers.

The Consultation includes a survey and a series of events held across the UK, including events for business, industry and the public sector.

There are also events planned for civil society, academia and the public, with a particular focus on young people, as well as events held in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to reflect the ICO’s UK-wide remit.

The Consultation looks to give to businesses and organisations a platform to share their experiences and say what's working, what's not and what would help them to achieve their objectives under the ICO legislation.

The exercise will conclude with the ICO’s flagship data protection conference, DPPC2022, which is expected to take place in person and digitally in the summer.

The Consultation is open for response and closes on 1 May 2022. View full details and respond to the Consultation.
