How Businesses Should Prepare for the No-Deal Brexit

There have been a lot of questions surrounding business practices and data protection within the United Kingdom (UK) of Great Britain and Northern Ireland pending a no-deal “Brexit” from the European Union (EU). With the 29 March 2019 deadline looming and political powers that be not agreeing on the proper terms for exit, it is becoming increasingly necessary to publish guidance on what issues a UK-based business will face as a result of the political impasse.

What to Expect

The government of the United Kingdom has decided that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be absorbed into existing UK law at the point of exit, whenever that may come. There are no substantive changes to the rules that organisations are required to follow. Organisations that rely on cloud-hosting services to transfer personal data between the United Kingdom and the EEA will likely be affected.
In the past, personally identifiable information has been allowed to pass freely across borders between the EEA and the United Kingdom. With 29 March 2019 arriving, the freedom of transmission will dissipate, necessitating a change in the processing required by businesses and organisations across the United Kingdom.
