Remember Brexit? It dominated the news before the pandemic. While it may not be on the front page any longer, the clock is still ticking down to the end of the transition period on December 31, 2020.
André Bywater explains in this podcast why businesses need to be aware of the deadline, particularly when it comes to understanding how it may affect their privacy compliance programs.
Although the UK is likely to develop privacy laws similar to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) they are not yet on the books. That could have implications for processing data.
In addition there will need to be an Adequacy decision for the UK and probably a Privacy Shield in place between the UK the US.
Data processors will also need to ensure that they understand what can and can’t be done with legacy data.
Listen here to learn more as the days count down to Brexit and what you need to do to make sure your data privacy preparations are adequate.
