Complying with the UK GDPR Steps 1 - 7: an introduction

Reviewed by: Health and Care IG Panel

If you are using personal data, you are obliged to protect it and comply with data protection law. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the UK regulator that oversees compliance and upholds information rights.

You can learn more about this in ICO's guide to the UK GDPR.

You should also consult your organisation’s information governance team (advisers in data protection and confidentiality matters) early on when considering plans to adopt a technology.
