Regulatory Experts Discuss the Implications of the Deal
Anna Delaney, Director of ISMG Productions interviews regulatory experts Jonathan Armstrong and Thom Langford to analyse the impact of Brexit on the U.K.’s data privacy and national security in an in-depth interview.
They also look at what the effects on the remaining EU members might be.
“What most organizations are going to have to look at is … things like … whether a UK-based business has to appoint a data protection representative in the EU and vice versa,” Armstrong says. “Most organizations will obviously have to look at EU’s GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation] and the U.K. GDPR, because they will be offering goods and services in both the EU and the U.K.”
In this video panel discussion with Information Security Media Group, Armstrong and Langford discuss:
- What we know so far about the data flow temporary agreement between the U.K. and EU and how organizations should prepare themselves for data security and privacy speed bumps;
- Whether the loss of close connections with the EU on intelligence and policing, such as access to the European Arrest Warrant and full access to Europol, will weaken the U.K.’s national security;
- How Brexit might affect the cyber skills talent gap and possible remedies.
