The Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) has also issued some very useful pieces of guidance for readers based in the Republic of Ireland ( https://www.dataprotection.ie/docs/GDPR/1623.htm and http://gdprandyou.ie/ ) , as has the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for those based in the UK and Northern Ireland (https://ico.org.uk/). Members are, therefore, advised to regularly check the CAI, DPC and/or ICO websites for the latest information and guidance in this area.
