brexit 3

When it comes to data protection and privacy, the European landscape was already looking like unchartered territory ahead of the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation.

Throw in the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union and Australian firms will have plenty to consider when collecting personal information on European citizens.

In part three of our video series, Corrs Partner Phil Catania takes a closer look at the implications of the UK’s decision to leave the EU and considers how it will impact on privacy.

  • What are the immediate privacy challenges for the UK, EU and the wider world?

  • How will the General Data Protection Regulation affect Australian firms doing business in Europe?

  • What will Australian firms now need to consider when collecting personal information from European citizens?

Over the coming weeks we’ll bring you insight from Corrs Partners who’ll examine areas ranging from global trade to international arbitration, trademarks, regulation and more. 

Look out for more episodes in this series, as Corrs Partners consider the key issues which will affect the ways in which Australian firms and their networks do business.

We’ll examine the challenges that will come with the changes, while also exploring the potential opportunities that might arise.
