Don’t forget your ICO Renewal!

I just received my ICO reminder renewal reminder email. This comes from a weird email address so you might just miss it. The email states when my renewal is due and the cost but also information about the fixed penalty notice for failing to renew.

The fine is over £4,0000 if you fail to renew your registration. Make sure you don’t forget!

There was a huge surge in registrations around GDPR day last year so many of you will be due to renew just about now. Make sure you know when and add a diary entry, write it on your whiteboard, put it in your phone. Whatever you do make sure you don’t forget.

Most companies will pay £40 or £35 by DD so a fine of £4K seems disproportionate but I guess there is no way to dispute this. A £4000 fine is definitely worth avoiding.

Good luck all.
