The General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) came into force in 2018 and aims to enhance an individual’s control and rights over their personal and sensitive data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for international trading. As a response the GDPR, the UK implemented the Data Protection Act 2018 to govern data obligations in the UK. Following Brexit in January 2021, GDPR was further adopted into UK legislation as UK GDPR. International businesses who process data belonging to individuals located in the EU must also continue to comply with GDPR as well as the UK legislation. Whilst GDPR and UK GDPR are currently almost identical, this may change over the coming years as laws in the UK and the EU develop and change.
