In a speech at the Munich Security Conference Saturday, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May proposed keeping the nation in "total alignment" with the EU's data-sharing rules after Brexit, Bloomberg reports. The proposal would allow intelligence agencies and businesses to continue sharing data across national borders. "We want to go further and seek a bespoke arrangement to reflect the U.K.'s exceptionally high standards of data protection," she said. "And we're ready to start working through this with colleagues in the European Commission now." May also proposed "an ongoing role for the U.K. Information Commissioner's Office, which would be beneficial in providing stability and confidence for EU and U.K. individuals and businesses alike."
