ICO Responds to DCMS ‘Fake News’ Inquiry Interim Report

Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner said:

“We have welcomed the opportunity to contribute to the DCMS inquiry, which is vital to understand the increasingly complex era of digital political campaigning, big data and disinformation online. The depth of analysis and strength of recommendations presented are testament to the global challenges facing democracy in the digital age.

“The committee’s work builds on the ICO’s recommendations in Democracy Disrupted, our report into the use of data analytics for political purposes where we reveal how personal data is used to target voters and highlight the transparency necessary to retain the trust and confidence of the electorate in the future.

“Much of our investigation has been referred to in parts of the committee’s report and we’re committed to completing the majority of our enforcement work and further findings by the end of October.”
