The following Commercial guidance note Produced in partnership with Nicola Fulford of Hogan Lovells and Chris Benn of Kemp Little LLP provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Brexit: On 31 January 2020, the UK ceased to be an EU Member State and entered an implementation period, during which it continues to be subject to EU laws, including those relating to cybersecurity and data protection. During this period, the UK generally continues to be treated as an EU (and EEA) state for EU and UK data protection law and cybersecurity purposes. Any references to EEA or EU states in this Practice Note should therefore be read to also include the UK until the end of the implementation period. For further guidance on that period, its duration and the data protection and cybersecurity laws that are anticipated to apply after the end of it, see Practice Notes: Brexit—implications for data protection and Brexit—cybersecurity.
