Britain plans new data rules to ease compliance burden
The British government is taking another shot at reforming its data protection laws to reduce the burden on businesses while still staying aligned with the European Union’s standards. This move is necessary to guarantee the free flow of data between Britain and the EU.
The proposed updates seek to simplify the system for companies, in addition to cutting down the number of distracting “cookie” pop-ups users see online. However, these changes will be made within limits, to ensure that the EU recognizes Britain’s high-level data security practices.
Michelle Donelan, Technology Minister, conveyed her hope that this new framework would make it easier for everyone involved to comprehend and abide by regulations, allowing them reap the benefits of a post-Brexit Britain.
