The ICO exists to empower you through information.

Technology is developing fast. At the Information Commissioner’s Office we want to make sure we keep pace with, and anticipate, these developments to understand their impact on privacy and information rights.

The ICO’s Technology Advisory Panel brings together industry professionals, academics and ICO staff to advise the ICO of the impact of technology on privacy and information rights.

The Panel meets approximately four times a year. There may be circumstances in which panel members are commissioned to undertake additional pieces of work on behalf of the ICO.

The panel is formed of a small number of permanent members who are invited to attend every session, supplemented by an advisory group of subject matter experts who may be brought in as needed to consult on topics relevant to their specialism. Applications are open for both permanent panel membership as well as membership of the advisory group.

Appointment for both permanent members and members of the advisory group will be for a two year term with scope for re-appointment.

Applications for the current intake are now closed. If you would like to be considered for the next intake please email [email protected] and we will notify you when applications reopen.
