The number of enquiries to Cifas and requests for data information continued to grow in 2016. We set up a new Consumer Affairs team and appointed our first Cifas Citizen Advocate to strengthen our skills and expertise in this area. To cope with growing demand, maintain response times and improve services for individuals wanting to find out about data we hold we plan to introduce an online Subject Access system in 2017.
