The GDPR turned the world of data protection upside down back in May 2018. The regulations were introduced to unify and strengthen data protection for everyone within the European Union, but what will happen in the wake of Brexit? Will the GDPR still apply to the UK? Is training as important?
The short answer to the above questions is a resounding YES.
The UK government has essentially 'copied and pasted' EU legislation into UK law to give themselves more time to think about what they want to keep and what they want to change.
Once we leave the EU (if that ever happens), the GDPR will no longer apply. However, the already existing Data Protection Act 2018 will apply, which is almost a carbon copy of the EU legislation and follows the same principles.
So, if you fail to meet your GDPR obligations you could still face the same massive fines.
