Data Protection in the Post-Brexit Era: Training and Toolkit Launch
January 20 @ 12:00 - 13:30 UTC+2
Since the GDPR’s implementation in the UK, there have been further updates and developments in data protection laws. Now that the UK has announced its intention to withdraw from the EU, a Brexit transition period has been implemented which ends on 31 December 2020, after which, the UK will be automatically re-classified as a “third country” under the GDPR in the absence of a data adequacy assessment by the European Commission. This and much more will be addressed by the training.
This event will also serve as the launch of a new self-help Data Protection Toolkit that will provide some tools required to allow NGOs, charities, and social enterprises can take up practical steps to ensure they are data protection compliant post-Brexit.
