On March 20, 2019, WSGR partner Cédric Burton and Of Counsel Lore Leitner hosted a webcast, “Brexit and Its Implications for Data Protection.” In this webcast, Burton and Leitner break down the potential far-reaching effects of the United Kingdom’s pending exit from the European Union on businesses operating in the UK and EU.

In this hour-long panel, the firm experts break down the steps that companies should consider taking to prepare for Brexit and potential changes to their data protection compliance program. Burton and Leitner discuss Brexit and its relationship to the GDPR; its various impacts on business, e.g., data transfers, binding corporate rules (BCRs), privacy notices, and other issues; and how to best prepare for a hard Brexit.
