The Information Commissioner’s Office has confirmed the position of the UK government in relation to the upcoming changes to the EU data protection laws. The government has stated that it will opt into the full General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regardless of what happens with Brexit.

The blog on the ICO’s website can be found here and gives more detail on what the ICO will be doing to assist organisations to plan for future compliance with the GDPR.

The GDPR is going to be the biggest change to data protection laws since the Data Protection Act came into force in 1998. If you would like to discuss how these changes will affect your organisation, please contact Tracey Wakelam at Exeter solicitors covering Devon, Cornwall and the rest of the UK.
