Sharing information with law enforcement authorities toolkit

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has introduced a toolkit called “Data Sharing and the Law: Explained” to help organizations make informed decisions about sharing personal data with law enforcement authorities.

The toolkit is divided into two stages: the first stage assesses whether the toolkit applies to the organization, while the second stage assesses the lawful and secure sharing of personal data. The toolkit provides a checklist of key data protection considerations for organizations, but it does not cover all possible scenarios and organizations are still responsible for conducting comprehensive evaluations.

Key points:

  • The ICO has introduced a toolkit to assist organizations in deciding whether to share personal data with law enforcement authorities.
