Data protection: advisory visits

Advisory visits – to small and medium-sized businesses, charities and not-for-profit organisations that process large amounts of personal information or sensitive data – can now be requested from the Information Commissioner’s Office. This advisory service is in addition to data protection audits which are more formal and extensive, and generally suited to larger organisations. It will be interesting to see how many businesses take advantage of such visits, the outcomes of which could be controversial.
