Virtual Event: Charting A New Path In the World – The United Kingdom’s Data Protection Reforms
July 12, 2022
When the United Kingdom left the European Union, it incorporated the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) into UK domestic law to enable uninterrupted data transfers from EU territory. On June 17, the UK government announced the results of an exhaustive public consultation on how it intends to “seize the benefits of Brexit,” diverge from the EU GDPR, and chart a more independent course in the world of data policy.
Could the planned changes promote greater interoperability among countries around the world? Are the UK reforms instructive for efforts elsewhere to amend or consider new privacy legislation? Could they affect the European Commission’s 2021 decision that the UK’s data protection laws are equivalent to those in the European Union? The Atlantic Council’s Europe Center hosts a panel discussion gauging reactions from transatlantic data policy experts.
