Miriam Everett, Head of the Data Protection and Privacy group at Herbert Smith Freehills, has been working with the LexisNexis Data Protection Intelligence Group to publish a paper on Brexit and international personal data transfers: Practical approaches for the private sector in a time of uncertainty.
The paper explores how potential new international transfer restrictions (between the UK and EEA) may apply in a variety of worked examples and in the event of different Brexit outcomes. It also outlines, with practical examples, the steps that businesses may want to take to continue personal data transfers post-Brexit.
As we approach the exit date, organisations are having to critically assess international data transfers and evaluate how to legitimise such transfers in a post-Brexit world. This paper is the first of its kind (as far as the group is aware) to give detailed worked examples of how available compliance solutions could be applied to both GDPR and UK GDPR regulation.
