ICO Guidance: The Right of Access

U.K. Information Commissioner's Office Acting Director of Regulatory Assurance Anulka Clarke announced the ICO released detailed guidance for the right of access. Clarke noted the guidance provides specific clarity on timelines for the validity of user requests and matters related to manifestly excessive requests. "The right of access is a cornerstone of data protection law and good (subject access request) compliance instils trust and confidence," Clarke said, noting the ICO will soon add a suite of resources covering various aspects of DSARs.
