Covington & Burling Partner Mark Young offered 12 highlights from the U.K.'s proposed data protection reforms. Among the most noteworthy points, Young wrote the U.K. "seems confident that there is scope" to execute these reforms without jeopardizing its adequacy agreement with the EU. Young also found the U.K. hopes to clarify the definition of "legitimate interests," easing restrictions around data use for artificial intelligence and machine learning, curtailing the data protection officer requirement and more. Editor's note: IAPP's Joe Duball reported on the U.K. reforms with reactions from the privacy community.
