Brexit: Victoria Hordern speaks to Global Data Review

Head of Data Privacy Victoria Hordern has been quoted by Global Data Review on the potential impact of a “No-Deal Brexit” on UK data protection law.

Key themes

Speaking to Global Data Review’s Sam Clark, Victoria notes that although many businesses regard a “No-Deal” scenario with trepidation, in practice the impact of this turn of events on them is likely to be limited.

Referring to the government’s advice that companies use derogations (often cited as a method of excluding GDPR requirements from data handling) Victoria said derogations can be: “…’interpreted narrowly and are unlikely to offer long term solutions’, meaning that standard contractual clauses are probably the easiest solution.”
