Data Protection Bill

Written by

The Government is set to amend the Data Protection Bill to protect researchers who might otherwise break the law during legitimate work. An exemption for researchers carrying out “effectiveness testing” will be added. Researchers will still have to notify the ICO within three days of ‘deanonymising’ data however.

The third reading of the Bill will take place on 17 January 2018.
