On July 4, 2017 the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) published its first International Strategy, which aims to improve privacy protection for the UK public in the changing global digital environment and with regard to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Brexit.

Elizabeth Denham, the UK's information commissioner, said: “There is little doubt that there are challenging times ahead but we are well placed to tackle them. We have a powerful voice and it is heard around the world, but we are excellent listeners too. That is our strength.This blueprint for how we will deliver on our international objectives was informed by experts from all over the world who challenged our perceived priorities and advised on what our next steps should be.”
