Data Protection and Brexit: preparing for the end of transition

In this webinar, we will discuss how Brexit is likely to play out in terms of the nature of the relationship between the UK and EU in terms of data protection rules and regulation and what companies should be doing in the run up to the end of the transition arrangements on 31 December 2020 to prepare for a no deal outcome. The webinar will take place on 11th August at 9am EST/2pm BST. Don't forget, if you can't make this time, sign up and we will send you the recording to watch at a time that suits you!
