The Data Protection legislation
In May 2018, we saw a big shake up in the Data Protection legislation, resulting in the birth of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (the GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act 2018 (the DPA 2018), which came into force the same day as the GDPR. Organisations are currently required to comply with both pieces of legislation.
GDPR and Brexit
When the UK exits the EU, the GDPR will no longer be law in the UK. However, the work organisations (including schools) have been doing to comply with the GDPR, will continue to be relevant after Brexit, as the UK’s government will amend the DPA 2018, to ensure it implements the main provisions of the GDPR into our laws. Further information about the impact Brexit may have on UK organisations is available at www.ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-and-brexit/
Firebird understands how difficult it is for schools and small businesses to find the time to read through the vast amount of information published about data protection, so we have produced a series of short guides to help!
