The ICO Updates Its Data Sharing Code of Practice

On 9 July 2019 the UK data protection authority (ICO) updated its Data Sharing Code of Practice (first published in 2011).

The Code is publicly available for consultation until 9 September 2019. Once finalised, the Code will become a statutory code of practice under the DPA. Non-compliance with the code will likely be considered non-compliance with data protection laws.

Netherlands wants easier sharing of info about criminals

It has to become easier to share information about criminals, regardless of strict privacy rules, Minister Ferdinand Grapperhaus of Justice and Security said to the Telegraaf in an interview.

The Minister said that he will present a proposal to make the sharing of information about criminals and criminal activity a bit easier. While calling for a more intensified approach to drug trafficking earlier this week, Mayor Aboutaleb noted how difficult it is to share information about suspected criminals with other municipalities.
