Personal data and Brexit

Information Commissioners Office has published a blog looking at how the transfer of personal data may be impacted by Brexit. Aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, the blog presents some facts about the transfer of personal data within the European Economic Area.

Although the UK’s data protection standards will continue to comply with GDPR, in September 2018, DCMS provided data guidance outlining the key steps to take in the event of a no deal Brexit.
