The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018. From that date, any organisation that processes personal data originating in the EU is required to comply with the GDPR. In a joint update from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) published on 8 February 2018, the FCA raised the importance of financial services firms needing to consider how GDPR will apply to them to ensure compliance.
The GDPR is a seismic change to European data protection laws to accommodate the use of technologies over the last 20 years and provides a consistent EU-wide law. GDPR requires organisations to implement and comply with a multitude of obligations.
On 13 December 2018, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) published guidance on its proposals on how the UK data protection regime will work in a no-deal scenario post-Brexit.
