In a recent speech, the Prime Minister cited data protection as one of “five foundations” that will underpin the future relationship between the UK and the EU. She indicated that she wanted more than just an adequacy decision for the UK (enabling the free flow of personal data from the EU to the UK) but also, perhaps optimistically, an ongoing EU role for the UK’s data protection regulator and effective representation for UK businesses under the ‘one stop shop’ mechanism.

One of the most useful recent examples is the guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office on Legitimate Interests. Expanded guidance has been produced on Data Protection Officers, the Right to be Informed, and an Introduction to the Data Protection Bill.
