GDPR and Brexit

GDPR. You thought you’d heard the last of it but it’s back and it’s got Brexit on its mind.

The Data Protection Commission has just released a notice with regards to what happens in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

In the event that the UK leaves the EU without a recognised agreement Irish organisations will need to make preparations to ensure that any data that is transferred adheres to GDPR guidelines for dealing with a ‘Third’ country.

Areas to consider:

  • Do you store information on UK based servers?
  • Do you outsource your HR, IT or Payroll function to a UK based organisation.
  • Are you using a UK based marketing company to send marketing communications to your customer database.
  • Is your occupational health provider based in the UK?
  • Is your pension scheme based in the UK?
  • Are you using a UK based company to analyse data on visitors to your website?

If you have concerns about any of the above please seek guidance from a GDPR support service.
