GDPR Post-Brexit - Business As Usual Or Not?
The UK has now left the European Union and as of December 2020 has secured a trade deal with the EU. Data adequacy as a more positive picture with bridging provisions to enable the transfer of personal data, pending a full adequacy decision next year.
This aside, after the end of the Brexit long stop date, the GDPR will no longer have direct effect in the UK, therefore further implementing legislation has been enacted to anticipate this, namely the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, which will incorporate into UK law a version of the GDPR (the UK GDPR).
The upshot of the changes to law is that it is likely to require processes to simultaneously comply with these various laws, particularly if over time there is divergence.
This virtual classroom seminar will consider some key post-Brexit issues related to data protection.
The session will be highly practical, thinking about privacy in the context of business as usual. It is ideal for private practice lawyers, in-house counsel, public authorities, charities and data protection officers.
