Data privacy and cybersecurity: Summer agenda 2022

Last week’s publication by DCMS of the outcome of its consultation “Data: a new direction” has the potential to put data protection very much back into the limelight. The document sets out the government’s plans to reform the UK’s data protection regime as part of its National Data Strategy  (see Article, DCMS data protection reforms: summary of consultation proposals).

John Edwards, the UK Information Commissioner, issued a statement supporting the proposals:

“We look forward to continuing to work constructively with the government as the proposals are progressed and will continue to monitor how these reforms are expressed in the Bill.”

Practical Law has written a short legal update covering the development and will follow up with a more detailed update in the coming days.
