Welcome to the ICO

The ICO is the UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals. The work of the office is varied and includes influencing information rights policy, writing guidance, enforcing the law and offering advice to organisations and the general public. 

The ICO’s Technology and Innovation departments deal with some of the most complex privacy, data rights, data protection and emerging technology issues that society faces.

The aim of the group is to make sure the ICO can assess and respond to these developments, and most importantly, to shape the future privacy, data and technology landscape.


We are expanding the team and looking for experts in a range of fields.
