As lockdown restrictions ease and businesses begin to reopen, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has set out the key steps organizations need to consider around the use of personal information.
The guidance focuses on six principles:
- Only collect and use what is necessary
- Keep it to a minimum
- Be clear, open and honest with staff about their data
- Treat people fairly
- Keep people’s information secure
- Staff must be able to exercise their information rights
