Businesses should monitor progress of the first draft of a new Data Protection Bill, published by the UK government to make sure their plans and preparations remain relevant and effective.
The main aim of the Bill is to implement the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will apply automatically to the UK from May 2018, pending the UK's exit from the EU.
The Bill is long and complex, and parts of it are likely to change significantly as it passes through Parliament, but at least businesses now have a concrete piece of proposed legislation to monitor.
The UK government has said that, even after the UK leaves the EU, its intention is to incorporate the GDPR into UK national law under the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill.
