Brexit. It's confusing. It's daunting. It's unresolved. Those of us following the saga remain anxious over how U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will gain enough agreement for a final resolution. Three votes in, and there's still no deal as to how the U.K. will exit the EU — or if it will at all. For privacy professionals, it's an important issue, because if the U.K. does leave and a "hard Brexit" is agreed upon, the U.K. will no longer enjoy the free flow of data it had as part of the EU under the General Data Protection Regulation. As companies grapple with what to do to prepare for a case in which alternative arrangements for data transfers must be made for lawful compliance, Hogan Lovells' Eduardo Ustaran, CIPP/E, has some insights that might help. In this episode of the podcast, Ustaran talks to host Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, about the latest developments. He also talks through movement on the ePrivacy Regulation, which aims to facilitate the confidentiality of communications in the EU and strengthen the digital economy. The text has long been in the negotiation process but now seems to be inching closer to a final agreement.
