The UK’s Information Commissioner Christopher Graham launched his office’s new guidance for journalists on data protection today. The guidance was developed after an open consultation and in response to the recommendations from the report of the Leveson Inquiry into the culture, ethics and practices of the press.

The guidance covers basic principles of data protection as well as practical issues related to access, storage and sharing of personal data.

At the same time ICO has also launched a consultation on its data sharing code of practice that will run until 5 October 2014.
