The UK has left the EU, and, since 28 June of this year it holds an EU adequacy decision, recognising the equivalency of its data protection laws with those of the EU GDPR. But for how long? Now, emboldened by its new-found freedom, and determined to advance the interests of its domestic digital economy, the UK government has published a draft paper for the wholesale reform of its data protection regime. No more DPIAs; no more mandatory DPO appointments; no more human intervention in A.I. processing – just some of the sweeping changes suggested by Whitehall. But can the UK keep its adequacy decision while turning its existing GDPR-based laws on their head, or is it playing with fire and hurtling towards an even more uncertain data future?
