Data Protection

Data protection is the area of law which includes the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (“DPA”), these regulatory and enforcement provisions are overseen by the Office of the Information Commissioner (“ICO”). As the owner of a business, protecting your company data is vital, the GDPR and DPA regulate the control and processing of data by entities such as companies, firms and sole traders established in the UK.

Our data protection solicitors can advise you on a range of data protection law, from what is covered by data protection, preventing breaches and violations to who needs to register, and following the principles in the Data Protection Act 2018.

With the GDPR introduced since 25 May 2018, you may need legal advice on your existing data and privacy processes to make sure you remain compliant with this new regulation.

How does Brexit effect the DPA 2018 and the GDPR?

The GDPR has been transposed in to UK law as the UK GDPR. If you receive personal data from the EU or EEA then it can continue to flow as usual, unless it falls in the DPA 2018 immigration exemption. Within the UK, you must comply with DPA 2018.

What else does the DPA 2018 cover?
