Get ready for the end of the transition period

The government has been increasing its messaging around being ready as we approach the end of the EU transition period, and the ICO is also making organisations aware.

The guidance will depends on how you answer these 4 questions:

  • Do you have any contacts, supporters or customers in Europe?
  • Do you send or receive data to or from Europe?
  • Do you have a European presence or European supporters?
  • Do you send or receive data to or from countries outside Europe?

If you think this does not apply to you, then do consider which cloud storage and other services you use; users of Microsoft, Google, AWS, etc may well be affected.

In next week’s insight newsletter I will be publicising a free webinar to introduce these issues and what you need to do, but you might like to read the full ICO article in the meantime.
