Brexit & GDPR – 6 Steps to take to ensure you comply with legislation

When we leave the EU you need to be prepared so here are 6 steps to take to ensure you comply with legislation.

You can take action now and start preparing data protection compliance

1. Continue to comply
Continue to apply GDPR standards and follow current ICO guidance.

2. Transfers to the UK
Review your data flows and identify where you receive data into the UK from the EEA. Think about what GDPR safeguards you can put in place to ensure that data can continue to flow once we are outside the EU.

3. Transfers from the UK
Review your data flows and identify where you transfer data from the UK to any country outside the UK, as these will fall under new UK transfer and documentation provisions.

4. European operations
If you operate across Europe, review your structure, processing operations and data flows to assess how the UK’s exit from the EU will affect the data protection regimes that apply to you.

5. Documentation
Review your privacy information and your internal documentation to identify any details that will need updating when the UK leaves the EU.

6. Organisational awareness
Make sure key people in your organisation are aware of these key issues. Include these steps in any planning for leaving the EU, and keep up to date with the latest information and guidance.
