Annual report 2020-21

Elizabeth Denham has published her fifth annual report as the UK's Information Commissioner.

On publishing the report Ms Denham said: “Our lives are now more digital than ever before: the past year has seen spikes in the use of online services to learn, stay in touch with others, keep fit and stay healthy. That impacts my office: our work is now more often complex and high profile, and increasingly overlaps with other areas of regulation.

“This annual report shows how we have successfully risen to these challenges, producing what I believe is this office’s most significant body of work.

“Our successes are testament to the hard work and expertise of the ICO’s staff, and the foundations of the modern ICO laid across the past five years.
