Coronavirus recovery - data protection advice for organisations
The ICO recognises the unprecedented challenges we are all facing during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As lockdown restrictions start to ease and businesses begin to reopen, we know you might need to continue to share information quickly or adapt the way you work. Data protection will not stop you doing that.
It's about being proportionate - if something feels excessive from the public's point of view, then it probably is. Our six data protection steps for organisations sets out the key principles organisations need to consider around the use of personal information.
And the ICO is here to help - please see below for answers to the questions we're being asked. If you need more help, call us on 0303 123 1113.
We have also produced specific advice for health and social care organisations during the coronavirus pandemic.
