Data protection in a no-deal Brexit: What you need to know

If the UK leaves the EU without a withdrawal agreement, the UK becomes a ‘third country’ under the GDPR.

Data protection rules for UK organisations may change. Law firms may need to review the way in which they’ve traditionally shared data across borders in the event of no deal.

This webinar reviews the steps that organisations need to take to prepare, and discusses the steps required for data flows:

  • into the EU
  • from the EU
  • between third countries

We’ll also examine the safeguards organisations can put in place to ensure they continue to comply with EU law in the event of a ‘no adequacy’ finding by the EU.
