Earlier this year — and five years after the Brexit referendum — the U.K. officially left the EU, giving rise to a new era of international commerce. As businesses work to adapt to this new paradigm, one question should not be overlooked: how does Brexit impact the international movement of data? In the first international episode of the Faegre Drinker on Law and Technology Podcast, host Jason G. Weiss talks with Faegre Drinker’s Huw Beverley-Smith and Jonathon Gunn about the data protection and privacy implications of life after Brexit.
The podcast covers a number of questions, including:
- How has Brexit affected data protection and privacy regulations?
- What practical steps have international businesses taken to deal with the effects of Brexit on their data protection compliance?
- Last year, the U.K. launched a consultation process for regulating consumer Internet of Things (IoT) security. What does that consultation entail? How close are we to IoT security legislation?
- Can we expect material changes to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) post-Brexit? What changes might we see?
