This comprehensive report was released at a time when the UK and most of the world has a significant focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham CBE recognises this in her forward.  

"While the work needed to implement my recommendations must not fall by the wayside, I am acutely aware that this report is issued at a time of unprecedented challenges flowing from the COVID-19 pandemic. I therefore acknowledge that the timeline for change will be longer than usual, but I am keen that we begin to make progress as soon as practicable, and I am committed to supporting that work at all stages." 

FORMOBILE is aware of this report and will review it in close detail to ensure that the project takes heed of the advice put forth following substantial input from stakeholders in various domains.
