Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data I believe what we are seeing now, the shif back you mention, is an obvious result of people admitting the initial Brexit was a mistake. Not having the capacity to accept that, and not being able to back track is going to bring consequences. The most affected are the younger generations, and the ones that will pay for the mistakes and the inhability to fix something that could be fixed with a second refendum. I am not an expert either, but I am entitled to having an opinion.

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data To be honest, I don;t know that I have the necessary insight on the issue to offer an "expert" opinion, but it would seem to me that some of the leanings that led to the initial Brexit vote have started to shift back the other way, as evidenced with the parlimentary results.

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data Phil -- What do YOU think, do you think it will set Brexit back?

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data Phil -- At the beginning, it was thought that the results were going to set Brexit back. Many don't want her to take it forward. She was also expected to resign. I am not sure what will actually happen. It might just mean a softer Brexit. -Susan

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data @Susan,

With May failing to win a majority recently, do you think that will set Brexit back? By how long?

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data Scott, the Brexit talks take two years. I think it's five years the time after Brexit when EU rules will have no effect on UK citizens. The EU data regulation will be happening at the same time the talks conclude. It's a lot what has to be considered. It would seem the UK would mirror the EU in data privacy regulations. But many things are unclear. After Brexit, the UK is no longer covered by the EU-US Privacy Shield. https://techcrunch.com/2016/08/01/eu-us-privacy-shield-open-for-sign-ups-from-today/ So it's that as well. Not just UK-EU, but UK and others after Brexit. It's not simple. Of course, it seems those who hurried to vote for the UK leaving the EU didn't consider anything beyong the tip of their nose. -Susan

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data Scott, I got this in an email from a service company that had saved my personal data. "We know that you've registered your details with us in the last 18 months, but because of changes to data protection, we need you to confirm that you're happy to carry on receiving communications from us." If I don't click on the big button to confirm they can keep my data they have to delete it. I wonder how companies will replace emai marketing now. Sure a lot of people will click on the opt-in button if they regularly use the service. However, the company's data base stored will considerably shrink. -Susan

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data @Susan: I wonder is the UK will develop its own standards for privacy once the Brexit talks are complete? That will be a number of years, though.

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data Basically, UK enterprises that trade in the EU will have to comply with GDPR for at least the data they have stored about their EU customers. It also makes sense that the UK keeps the same regulations that the members of the block when it's about data protection. If they don't have the necessary technology they have a bit less than a year to finish whatever they have to finish and make it work. There is a big movement about data privacy and data protection around. I would be surprised if by May someone doesn't have the technology needed in place.

Re: Flexibility to businesses protecting individual's personal data  @Susan: I think that's a great point about having one law to deal with, and that's why the UK adhering to that also helps out and will help the companies located in the UK and doing business in the EU – Brexit or not. I guess the bigger question is, and the one that IBM is looking at, is do these companies have the tech to make this work. The Gartner survey doesn't seem to think so.
