Proposed changes to UK data protection and digital information laws

One of the final acts of the Boris Johnson Government before the Parliamentary summer recess was to publish the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill.  It remains to be seen whether further changes will be proposed by the next prime minister, but the Bill builds on a number of earlier consultations.  If enacted, the Bill will make various changes to UK GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, amongst other matters.

We have prepared an overview of the changes contained in the Bill here.
