With Data Privacy and Adequacy forming a part of the current negotiations between the UK and the EU, keeping up to date with the most current information is vital to ensuring that you are not left behind by developments. Join us at the Chamber on the 15th of October for a webinar featuring Sophia in 't Veld MEP, which should help participants understand the complexities of this area.

Data Adequacy is granted to a nation outside the EEA if they provide a level of data protection comparable to European Law. With the EU Commission stating that it 'cannot predict' whether the UK will be fit for this agreement, agreements and regulatory changes around this area could affect any business that deals with personal data. With data protection becoming more important for companies since the advent of GDPR, changes around this area are likely to affect most businesses

Sophia in 't Veld is a Dutch MEP and leader of the Democrats 66 party in the European Parliament. We look forward to her informed opinion in this vital area of European cooperation.
