ICO guidance on international data transfers

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has guidance on international transfers guidance:

This information aims to help organisations know how to protect people’s personal information when making international transfers. The guidance clarifies an alternative transfer risk assessment approach to the one put forward by the European Data Protection Board.

With the guidance, and the six-question TRA tool, the ICO offers a framework to help people identify an initial risk level for categories of data and focus on whether the transfer significantly increases the risk of either privacy or other human rights breach. The ICO believes this approach captures the key risk to the people the data is about and is also achievable.
