The U.K. Information Commissioner's Office announced its submission to the public consultation on the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport's proposed data reforms. Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham wrote she mostly supports DCMS's review, but "the devil will be in the detail" as the proposals evolve. She said she appreciates how the reforms recognize how the U.K. needs "a legislative framework with people at its heart." Denham was skeptical of some aspects of the proposals and how they present "risk to regulatory independence." Editor's note: The DCMS's Joe Jones recently discussed the U.K.'s plans for data transfers in The Privacy Advisor.
