The DPO Centre was one of the sponsors of the virtual European Privacy & Security Summit on June 18th 2020. During this digital event we asked the attendees if they felt their organisation was well prepared for Brexit and the arrival of UK GDPR.
The results show more than 1 in 4 participants (29.2%) felt their organisation was not prepared. This is concerning given that Brexit is now less than 200 days away.
The clock is ticking for many organisations in the UK that need to make the necessary changes to remain complaint with both the UK and EU GDPR post-Brexit.
During the European Privacy & Security Summit The DPO Centre provided a presentation covering the specific data protection related issues that organisation need to ensure they have addressed prior to the end of the Brexit transition period, now confirmed as being the 31st of December 2020.
