Paul Driver, EU Exit - Data Protection Economic Taskforce at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, spoke to us about what businesses need to do in the event of a no-deal Brexit to ensure they continue to be compliant with data protection law.

“For UK businesses that operate across the EU or exchange personal data with partners in the EEA, there may be changes that need to be made ahead of the UK leaving the EU to ensure continued compliance.

“To help businesses prepare, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has published a suite of guidance and tools on its website that explains what to do if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.”

They include the following:

“The ICO has also set up a helpline to provide businesses with further advice and guidance. The number is 0303 123 1113 and calls are charged at the local rate.”
