Seminar: Data protection implications of (a no-deal) Brexit

02.10.2019 EU law

On October 25th at 9.30 am, we organize a seminar where we will discus the implications of a (no-deal) Brexit on data protection.  These issues affect all businesses interacting between UK and EEA (including EU) and which send or receive data to and from UK.

We will highlight the main challenges both in the case of a hard Brexit on 31 October 2019 and in other scenarios. We will also offer guidelines to help your organisation mitigate the respective risks.

This seminar and panel discussion will be moderated by senior experts Oliver Patel, David Stevens and Erik Valgaeren.

  • Oliver Patel, Manager of and Research Associate at University College London European Institute, is an experienced writer, public speaker and media commentator a.o. on BBC, Sky News and CNN regarding Brexit, UK/EU Politics and EU data protection law and policy. He publishes widely on both Brexit and tech policy in The Guardian, The New York Times, The Financial Times, Washington Post, Al Jazeera, …and will provide us with the latest update on data protection implications of (a no-deal) Brexit.

  • Mr David Stevens, Chairman of the Belgian Data Protection Authority, will share some of his views on the subject and participate in the discussion.
  • Erik Valgaeren, partner at Stibbe Brussels and head of our TMT data protection team, will chair this event. Several of our TMT team members will also participate drawing on their own experience in the matters we handle on a day-to-day basis.
