TypeBILETA Response to UK Government Consultation: Data a new direction
PublisherBILETA
Number of pages56
Publication statusPublished - 19 Nov 2021

Abstract

This consultation presents proposals that build on the key elements of the current UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), such as its data processing principles, its data rights for citizens, and its mechanisms for supervision and enforcement. The proposals aim to deliver an even better data protection regime that will:

Support vibrant competition and innovation to drive economic growth
Maintain high data protection standards without creating unnecessary barriers to responsible data use
Keep pace with the rapid innovation of data-intensive technologies
Help innovative businesses of all sizes to use data responsibly without undue uncertainty or risk, both in the UK and internationally
Ensure the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is equipped to regulate effectively in an increasingly data-driven world

This consultation is the first step in the process of reforming the UK’s regime for the protection of personal data.
