UK: New year, new Data Protection Act

By the time this issue of Data Protection Leader is in print, the Data Protection Bill 2017 (‘the Bill’) will have nearly finished its passage through the House of Lords. It seems likely that it will receive Royal Assent sometime in April 2018. Ruth Boardman and Emma Drake, Partner and Associate at Bird & Bird LLP respectively, provide a summary of the Bill (useful for those put off by its 203-page length and complexity), highlight some of the areas of uncertainty and debate, and set out what comes next.
