Government and Regulatory Affairs

The ILC GRA is informing Members about public consultations on emerging issues and regulations which may be of interest to them and their respective organisations.  Should you be interested in participating, are already active, have professional views to offer, or have any related questions, requests or feedback, please contact the ILC GRA Team: Peter Drabwell ( and Olivia Bosch (

Some of the previous initiatives we consulted on are shown below:

UK Government (DCMS) Developing the UK cyber security profession

Cyber security professionals in the UK are already among some of the best in the world, but need to further develop the right skills, capabilities and professionalism to meet our national needs across the whole. In the National Cyber Security Strategy, published in 2016, the Government made a commitment to develop the cyber security profession in the UK. This consultation set out bold and ambitious proposals to implement that.

Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Age Appropriate Design Code

The Information Commissioner (the Commissioner) called for evidence and views on the Age Appropriate Design Code (the Code), a requirement of the Data Protection Act 2018 (the Act). The Act supports and supplements the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  This call for evidence was the first stage of the consultation process.

Financial Stability Board (FSB) – Cyber Lexicon Consultative Document

This consultation sought input on a draft Cyber Lexicon which comprised a set of 50 core terms related to cyber security and cyber resilience in the financial sector.  After consideration of responses, the FSB finalised the lexicon for delivery to the G20 Summit.
