A group of UK MPs wrote a letter to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office demanding stronger data protection enforcement.
“It is imperative that you take action to establish public confidence – a trusted system is critical to protecting public health. The ICO has powers to compel documents to understand data processing, contractual relations and the like (Information Notices). The ICO has powers to assess what needs to change (Assessment Notices). The ICO can
demand particular changes are made (Enforcement notices). Ultimately the ICO has powers to fine Government, if it fails to adhere to the standards which the ICO is responsible for upholding.”
