Brexit, GDPR & Privacy Shield
If you thought that Brexit meant that you didn’t have to comply with new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you might want to think again….
- Any UK company which trades in the EU will still have to comply with EU GDPR regardless
- It looks increasingly likely that the UK will need to upgrade its data protection laws to be consistent with EU GDPR as part of Brexit
- Moving outside of the EU also affects UK/US data transfers and safeguards, again it is likely that EU/US Privacy Shield (Safe Harbour replacement) consistency will be required
- With Brexit likely to take until 2019 at the earliest UK organisations will still need to consider compliance with EU GDPR since it will come into effect 25 May 2018
