Collibra welcomes Dennis Slattery as our guest blogger on the topic of GDPR. The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors only and do not reflect the views or policy of Collibra or any of its employees or affiliates.
On September 13, the U.K. government introduced in Parliament the Data Protection Bill. Its purpose is to implement a comprehensive data privacy framework for the UK in the post-Brexit environment. The scope of the bill covers:
The bill is meant to function as a bridge between the existing U.K. approach to data protection under the 1998 Data Protection Act and the new framework created by the GDPR and the LED. In essence, the bill reinforces the UK’s position on data protection by replicating many of the provisions and safeguards contained in the 1998 Act. These include processing of sensitive data around criminal convictions, automated decision making safeguards and exemptions for processing under certain types of circumstances (e.g. crime and taxation purposes, research, historical or statistical purposes.) The age of a child (for UK consent purposes is set at 13 as against 16 in the GDPR.)
The existing offense of unlawfully obtaining personal data is retained with the penalty of unlimited fines. Two new offenses are created: (1) re-identification of personal data which is contained in an anonymized dataset; and (2) alteration of personal data to prevent disclosure in response to a data subject access request.
Transferring data across the EU boundary is tricky. The EU Commission controls a list of ‘3rd’ countries it deems as having ‘adequate levels’ of data protection. Only a few countries are listed: Andorra, Argentina, Canada (commercial organisations), Faeroe Islands, Guernsey, Israel, Isle of Man, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland and Uruguay. To transmit data to an entity in another country involves additional legal mechanisms such as the EU/USA ‘Privacy Shield agreed between the US Department of Commerce and the EU Commission.’
In simple terms, EU privacy law puts human rights at the core of data protection while the USA prioritises ‘national security’ ahead of personal privacy. ‘Privacy Shield’ tries to resolve this by providing a legal framework but it is subject to constant (and successful) legal challenge which generates uncertainty for everyone involved.
Arguably, the UK position on privacy lies somewhere between the EU and US positions. The status of post-Brexit cross border flows is one of the key items in the EU/UK Brexit negotiations. The outcome will determine whether the UK has 3rd country status, some ‘special’ status or no status at all.
Watch this space. This UK bill may not be the end of the story.
