Brexit and the GDPR
Does Brexit affect your compliance to the EU General Data Protection Regulation?
What data regulations now apply to UK businesses?
Before the GDPR was proposed in January 2012 by the European Commission and approved by the European Parliament in April 2016, UK and EU businesses operated under the Data Protection Directive. However, on June 23rd 2016, the UK public decided to leave the European Union. So what does Brexit and the GDPR mean for UK marketers moving forward?
In short, until Article 50 is triggered and the conditions of the UK’s exit from the EU finalised, B2B marketers will still need to comply with the new legislation. After the conditions of our leave have been set, it is likely we will still have to have similar if not an identical regulation in place in order to continue doing business with EU citizen’s data.
