How to prepare for a no deal GDPR Brexit

July 30 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

how to prepare for a no deal gdpr brexit

In the latest communication from the EU Commission, they have set out their intentions to do everything they can to conclude the assessment as to whether the UK will, post-Brexit transition, have a data protection adequacy decision.

No adequacy decision and the UK will be a “third country” from January 2021 and transfers of data into the UK from the EEA will only be lawful if safeguards are in place.

However, in the same communication they suggest EEA businesses should “take the necessary steps to ensure the compliance of any personal data transfers to the United Kingdom with Union data protection law, irrespective of the scenario whereby an EU adequacy decision will be taken with regard to the United Kingdom.” In other words, don’t rely on an adequacy decision happening in time and prepare in case it isn’t.

If there is no adequacy decision, then EU organisations will need to rely on contractual arrangements with their UK processors. This means if you’re a UK business that processes data from the EEA, you are likely to be needing to enter into contract negotiations regarding the GDPR compliance elements of your service and that could be a made rush at the end of the year, if an EU adequacy decision doesn’t look likely.

So, join me for this free webinar where I’ll discuss:

  • What the GDPR says about non-EEA data transfer
  • What the current situation is with GDPR and Brexit in terms of how it impacts UK businesses
  • What the EU Commission communication means in terms of no adequacy decision
  • Tips on what you can do now to pre-empt your clients getting you to sign new contracts including the standard contract clauses
  • Q&A

👉 Reserve your place here, on Eventbrite.

  • If you have your camera turned on, everyone else in attendance will be able to see you and your surroundings (including anyone who may pass by behind you)
  • Attendees will also be able to see the names of other attendees, depending on their Zoom settings. If you would rather the other attendees did not know your name, you should change your Zoom profile settings before joining the Zoom webinar (or you can change them once into the webinar)
