The Protection of Official Data project was referred to the Law Commission by the Cabinet Office in late 2015. We commenced work in February 2016 and they will publish their final report in Summer 2017.

"This response from Dr Stephen Castell and the BCS Law Specialist Group to the Law Commission regarding Professor David Ormerod's recent report on protecting official data follows an excellent discussion with the author at BCS HQ in March. It is an outstanding example of the way in which BCS can provide relevant and up-to-date advice on matters of national importance based on contributions from experts in digital-related fields drawn from our own membership." Ray Long, Immediate Past-President.
