United Kingdom’s Data Protection Act

The Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) is a UK law that affects any business or organisation that handles personal data of people in the United Kingdom. The act came into force on 31 December 2020, replacing the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as the UK’s primary data protection law after Brexit. It’s important to comply with this law, but it can be a challenge. However, complying with the UK Privacy Act is also an opportunity to show your commitment to protecting people’s personal information.

What is the UK’s Data Protection Act?

The UK Privacy Act is a new data privacy regulation that replaces the GDPR in the UK. The regulation aims to give individuals more control over their personal data, and requires businesses to obtain explicit consent from individuals before collecting, storing, or using their data. 

For businesses, the UK Privacy Act means that you’ll need to take a number of steps to ensure that you’re compliant with the regulation. The act requires businesses to obtain explicit consent from individuals before collecting, storing, or using their data and to ensure that personal data is processed in accordance with strict principles of transparency, fairness, and accountability. 

Why does your organisation need to be UK Privacy Act compliant?

Compliance with the law is essential for businesses processing personal data in the UK. It’s not only a legal requirement but also vital for maintaining customer trust and protecting personal data. 

It helps you to minimise the risk of costly data breaches and avoid severe fines and penalties of up to £17.5 million or 4% of your organisation’s global annual turnover, whichever is higher.
