Preparing for GDPR
The UK’s economy is underpinned by the ability to analyse and move data. In fact, soaring data flows now generate more economic value than the global goods trade, raising world GDP by approximately 10 per cent over the last decade. As the leading digital economy in Europe, the UK has the most to gain, and conversely the most to lose, from the European data protection landscape.
The ways in which companies use this data and move it across borders is governed by strict data protection regulations. Critically on 25 May 2018 the GDPR will apply to UK law despite the Government’s pledge to begin the Brexit process in March 2017. This will provide a wide-ranging new legal framework for data protection regulation in the EU.
Despite the threat of financial penalties for non-compliance with the Regulation, 50% of global companies have admitted that they will struggle to meet its rules unless they make significant changes to how they operate.
See UK Gov and ICO links for GDPR compliance, post Brexit Transition period, that come into play 1st January 2021.

Data protection and GDPR
During the transition period, there has been no change to the UK’s data protection standards. EU data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), have continued to apply throughout the transition period alongside the Data Protection Act 2018. The Information Commissioner remains the UK’s independent supervisory authority on data protection.
After the end of the transition period, GDPR will be retained in UK law and will continue to be read alongside the Data Protection Act 2018, with technical amendments to ensure it can function in UK law. The UK remains committed to high data protection standards.
