Description of the event from the UK ICO’s website:
This session features senior ICO staff in conversation about the most commonly applied FOIA personal data exemption: section 40(2). We’ll discuss how to determine whether the requested information is personal data, and whether it’s always necessary to disclose personal data in order to meet the legitimate interest. It aims to steer you through aspects of the exemption in a practical way.
The workshop is designed for public authority staff and anyone else who deals with requests under FOIA and the EIR. Some experience of the section 40 exemption would be useful, but it should also help those who are newer to FOI.
