ICO publishes new PET guidance, John Edwards attends G7 roundtable

19/06/2023 | ICO

The Information Commissioner's Office has published new guidance covering the use of privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs). The guidance is split into two sections. The first part is aimed at data protection officers and other practitioners with data protection responsibilities, while the second part is intended for a more technical audience

In a blog article, the ICO recommends that organisations use PETs to safely share people's personal information. These technologies allow for innovative and trustworthy applications that can link and analyse personal information without direct access. 

Information Commissioner John Edwards is attending the G7 data protection and privacy authorities roundtable meeting in Tokyo, Japan, this week. Mr Edwards said: “Together with our G7 counterparts, we are focused on facilitating and driving international support for responsible and innovative adoption of PETs, by researching and addressing barriers to adoption with clear guidance and examples of best practice."
