The United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union will transform the way personal data is shared between the two parties from a relationship based on a deeply integrated single legal framework to one between two separate jurisdictions.

For millions of EU and UK citizens and businesses, and for billions of individual exchanges of personal data currently relying on a borderless environment, this will be a significant and potentially disruptive change. It will require a new relationship between two legal frameworks based on the mutual goal of ensuring a high standard of protection for citizens’ personal data.

No interruptions – Options for the future UK-EU data-sharing relationship
