Voiced by Amazon Polly

The ICO have released a toolkit to help companies making use of AI and automated decision making with their Risk Assessments.

As the blog post says on their website:

The toolkit contains risk statements to help organisations using AI to process personal data understand the risks to individuals’ information rights. It also provides suggestions on best practice organisational and technical measures that can be used to manage or mitigate the risks and demonstrate compliance with data protection law.

The toolkit reflects the auditing framework developed by our internal assurance and investigation teams. This framework gives us a clear methodology to audit AI applications and ensure they process personal data in compliance with the law. If your organisation is using AI to process personal data, then by following this toolkit, you can have high assurance that you are complying with data protection legislation.
