On 17 June 2022 the DCMS published its long-awaited response to its Consultation, Data: a new direction.

Since the Consultation opened in September last year the UK government has received almost 3,000 responses, with huge issues at stake for UK businesses, citizens, trading partners, and the ICO.

It is the first significant indication of the direction that the UK's next data protection law will take, as the Government looks to reduce barriers to innovation and growth without undermining the UK's Adequacy Decision.

We have set out some of the key developments we can expect to see, and the potential impact of those changes for organisations processing personal data in the UK to help you see quickly what is ahead and how this may impact your business.

Find out the key developments here >

We will be discussing these proposals in further detail during our next Data Download webinar on 29 June 2022 at 11:30am. You can register below to hear from Claire Edwards, Dr Nathalie Moreno and Richard Craig who will be discussing the impact of these proposed changes.

If you have any questions that you would like to raise on the topics ahead of the webinar or any other queries please contact our Events team.
