ICO prepares for post-Brexit GDPR
"Information commissioner Elizabeth Denham has welcomed the UK government's confirmation that it will implement the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) despite the outcome of the UK referendum.
In a blog post, Denham wrote: 'I see this as good news for the UK. One of the key drivers for data protection change is the importance and continuing evolution of the digital economy in the UK and around the world.
‘The digital economy is primarily built upon the collection and exchange of data, including large amounts of personal data – much of it sensitive. Growth in the digital economy requires public confidence in the protection of this information.’
Denham’s comments follow government confirmation during last week’s select committee meeting for culture, media and sport that the GDPR will go ahead.”
