Further detail on UK approach to data protection

The need for alignment with the European data protection framework, particularly in respect of law enforcement purposes, was emphasised by the Prime Minister recently. In her speech in Munich on 17th February, Theresa May referred to the UK’s high standards of data protection and the importance of creating stability and confidence for citizens. While much has to be decided and achieved, it is clear that compliance with the principles, aims and objectives of the forthcoming legislation, as a minimum, is required.
