Since Brexit, new rules apply when doing business with Europe. It’s important to understand some of the common myths around the GDPR to achieve compliance and to look at what you will need to do under the new rules.
GDPR was adopted on 14 April 2016 and became enforceable throughout the EU on 25 May 2018. GDPR meant that organisations must implement data protection principles to protect information about individuals, including customers and employees of business. The fines for non-compliance are potentially extremely high.
When we left the European Union, there was a transition period which ended on 31 December 2020. During that transition, the law stayed as it had been when we were EU members. But when the transition ended on January 1, 2021, the law changed. You will need to be aware of these changes in order to comply.
Robert Lands, a partner at Howard Kennedy and an ACID Legal Affiliate will guide us through this tricky area with easy-to-understand explanations of the changes post-Brexit followed by a Q & A session.
