ICO takes action for failure to pay new data protection fee

The ICO has announced it has begun formal enforcement action against 34 organisations that have failed to pay the new data protection fee. The data protection regulator has sent notices of its intent to fine the organisations unless they pay. 
All organisations that process personal data must pay a fee to the ICO unless they are exempt. The money is used to fund the ICO’s data protection work and new and expanded services introduced such as its advice line, more online resources and new guidance as strengthened data protection laws have come into force.
