The proposed new UK data protection laws and the GDPR (microblog)
It's nearly time.
Your organisation is GDPR compliant, you ‘think’ you are ahead of the game but then the news headlines read:
‘The new UK Data Protection Bill has been passed through Parliament. It is designed to complement the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is a complex piece of legislation that should be read alongside the GDPR’. (It hasn't but just imagine)
What would you do? Did you know about the new UK Data Protection Bill? Thumbs up if you did, but if you didn’t…
You wouldn’t be the only one to presume the GDPR covered everything about data protection and to not be aware of the Data Protection Bill debate currently going on in the House of Commons.
You need to look beyond the 25th May 2018 because more changes are on the horizon. Don't sit back and put your feet up, stay up to date with all the data protection developments.
On Monday the 5th March 2018 the Data Protection Bill had a second reading in the House of Commons. The Bill gives guidelines for the processing of personal data and it sets out how the UK would apply the derogations available under the GDPR.
The purpose of the Data Protection Bill is to:
Make provision for the regulation of the processing of information relating to individuals
Make provision in connection with the Information Commissioner’s functions under certain regulations relating to information
Make provision for a direct marketing code of practice and for connected purposes
