This week the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) published guidance for SMEs in the event of a no-deal Brexit. The advice aims to help organisations better prepare for data protection compliance once the UK ceases to be part of the EU.
While the ICO acknowledges that most of the data protection rules affecting small to medium-sized businesses will stay the same post a no-deal, there are still some checks that businesses should implement; particularly if your business receives any personal data from Europe or targets customers in Europe. See the advice here.
