If your organisation processes Personal Data in the context of selling goods or services to citizens of EU countries, then you will need to comply with the GDPR, post-Brexit.
If the activities are limited to the UK, then the position (after the initial exit period) is much less clear. The UK Government has indicated it will implement equivalent, or alternative, legal mechanisms. The expectation is that any such legislation will largely follow the GDPR. This is because of the support previously provided to the GDPR by the ICO and the UK Government as an effective privacy standard. Also the GDPR provides a clear baseline against which UK business can seek continued access to the EU digital market.
Where can I find out more information about what effect that BRexit will have on the GDPR?
The Jaz'ing Up GDPR! book covers what effect that BRexit will have on the GDPR in more detail in a fun and easy to understand way without all of the bureaucratic legalise that is common in all other books and discussions about the GDPR.
The book is full of cartoons and call outs to make it easier to grasp what GDPR is all about and is split into 3 main sections.
- GDPR Nuts and Bolts explains everything you need to know about the GDPR and what effect that BRexit will have on the GDPR.
- Staff Toolbox that is designed for staff who work with personal data and need to get a grounding on the subject.
- Your Rights as a Data Subject is written from the point of view of the individual person who is affected by the GDPR so that they know there rights and the types of things they will be asking for.
