Re: Uncle Sam and Boris

No, the UK implementation of the EU GDPR was never compliant and was sent back to Parliament on several occasions for rectification.

But, now that the UK has left the EU, they will have to repair the UK Data Protection act to be compliant with GDPR, if they want to continue processing EU data. They have the same responsibilities as any other country vying for the processing and storage of EU sourced data. If the US can be told to go screw, I doubt they will have any problems telling the UK the same thing, if they fail to tighten up DP, let alone make it more lax.
