The Data Protection Bill has been published

Posted on 14 September 2017SharePrint

The Government has now published the Data Protection Bill. The Bill will implement the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the UK and seeks to ensure that this country can continue to hold or move data freely within the borders of the European Union.

The Government says that the Bill will achieve the following...

  • Make our data protection laws fit for the digital age in which an ever increasing amount of data is being processed.
  • Empower people to take control of their data.
  • Support UK businesses and organisations through the change.
  • Ensure that the UK is prepared for the future after we have left the EU.
