If there is no deal in place at the point of exit when the UK leaves the EU, this would impact how organisations exchange personal data.
Although the UK’s own data protection standards would remain the same (the GDPR will come into our domestic law), there would be changes to how personal data transferred from the EU/EEA to the UK. This could affect your organisation.
It is important for organisations, as a priority, to review whether they would be affected. For those that would be affected, practical advice and support from the ICO is available here, including ‘Six Steps to Take’ to help you understand the implications and prepare.
Other information on how leaving the EU may affect your organisation, and what you can do to get ready, is available gov.uk/euexit here.
