UK data protection and digital information bill explained
It has been more than four years since the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was applied to the UK, as supplemented by the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018.1 Since then, the UK has left the EU. Having reflected on the advantages and disadvantages of the current framework, the government identified and consulted on several areas where it considered improvements could be made that would benefit those who process personal data while retaining high data protection standards. Any revised legislation may have impacts on the UK's adequacy as well as trading abilities throughout the EU. This article will review the current status of the bill together with a review relating to the impact of the proposed legislation within the UK.
