European Data Protection Supervisor Wojciech Wiewiórowski said the U.K. may have to wait before negotiations can start on a new data deal with the EU following Brexit, the Financial Times reports. Wiewiórowski said the U.K. is “13th in the row” of countries seeking to strike a new deal. He added allowing the U.K. to move ahead of the line “would be a little bit unfair towards those who have already prepared themselves for this process.” Wiewiórowski pointed to how British intelligence agencies handle personal data collected in the EU as an area of concern moving forward.
