Today the ICO issued an enforcement notice to the Ministry of Justice, ordering them to reply to 7,753 outstanding subject access requests (SARs) by 31 December 2022.
Yes, you read that correctly 7,753 outstanding SAR’s! Even with a very generous 12 months to action these SAR’s that’s a tough deadline to meet.
Staying on top of SAR’s is critical. Make sure your staff pass them to your DPO ASAP and don’t delay in starting to action them.
