Now that Brexit is a reality, organizations doing business or even serving customers in the United Kingdom are struggling to understand which data protection requirements they should follow and how. Technically the General Data Protection Requirements (GDPR) of the European Union will no longer apply to the UK. So what are organizations supposed to do if they are doing business not only in the UK but also in other EU countries? In this session, a panel of experts will walk the audience through the salient UK requirements, as well as the salient GDPR requirements post Brexit.
