Abstract or Description

This Government consultation presents proposals that build on the key elements of the current UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), such as its data processing principles, its data rights for citizens, and its mechanisms for supervision and enforcement. The proposals aim to deliver an even better data protection regime that will:

Support vibrant competition and innovation to drive economic growth

Maintain high data protection standards without creating unnecessary barriers to responsible data use

Keep pace with the rapid innovation of data-intensive technologies

Help innovative businesses of all sizes to use data responsibly without undue uncertainty or risk, both in the UK and internationally

Ensure the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is equipped to regulate effectively in an increasingly data-driven world

This consultation is the first step in the process of reforming the UK’s regime for the protection of personal data and reflects. This report elaborates on the British and Irish Law Education Technology Association (BILETA) perspectives on data protection reform.
