Brexit and Data Protection

The European Commission has started to implement its preparations for a no-deal Brexit and one of the eight sectors they are looking at is data protection.

In the event of a no-deal Brexit, after March 29, the UK will be treated as a third country like any other country for data transfer and U.K. controllers and processors would no longer be considered part of the EEA. 

Organisations might even need to establish a representative within the EEA, as required under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation rules.

We will be watching developments carefully and in January we will be publishing a series of articles offering; information and advice to organisations from subject matter experts.
