Just when you thought you had done all you needed to do about data protection, you should brace yourself, there are further change just around the corner. The reason is Brexit.
In the event of a No-Deal-Brexit the Government has prepared new legislation which it has called the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation 2019, or for short, the UK GDPR.
Yes, we are going to have our own version of the existing EU GDPR to ensure we can continue to process data separately from our Europe neighbours after we leave. The processing of data of UK citizens will be largely unaffected, with some technical amendments to any current policies and of course the mandatory need to ensure that UK based data subjects are aware of such change. But if you process the data of any European citizens then there are far-reaching consequences.
