The global, EU and UK data protection landscape is at a crossroads. And organizations across all sectors are waking up to the fact that change is inevitable.
Regulations tend to transcend border therefore whatever happens in the European Union will have implications elsewhere.
WILL THE PROPOSED EU DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS BE ENACTED OR LOSE IMPETUS AND DISAPPEAR DURING THE LENGTHY EU LEGISLATIVE PROCESS? Quite simply, the Regulations will happen. The real question is not ’if’ but ‘when?’.
The Commission’s top priority is to move away from different approaches to the current Directive’s implementation and interpretation to a single set of rules on data protection valid across the EU – the new Regulations.
And a final ‘sting in the tail’ are the 26 delegated acts in the Regulations whereby it will be the Commission that effectively has a drafting function even after the Regulations have been finally approved.
We suggest that you read the attached report which was compiled by BIIA’s Expert Advisors on Privacy and Regulatory Affairs Mike Bradford.
