Brexit and UK internet privacy
Personal data is the fuel of the digital age and the UK is a top producer due to deep internet and ecommerce usage.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a key plank of the Digital Single Market (DSM), will directly apply in May 2018, before the date of Brexit in 2019.
Upon Brexit, GDPR adoption would ensure easy certification by the Commission for data transfers outside the EU, giving companies another reason to stay in the UK.
