We discuss the key consequences of Brexit for data protection and the challenges business continue to face post-Brexit.

The UK government has recently announced wide-ranging proposals for data protection reform post-Brexit. In this session, we discuss what these proposals mean for global business, with a focus on key strategic and practical aspects including:

  • An expansive framework for international data flows
  • Increased thresholds for data breach notification
  • Clarification of specific legitimate interests on which businesses can rely for data processing
  • A more practical, risk-based approach to accountability
  • Relaxing the user consent requirements for a wider range of cookies and online tracking technologies and purposes
