Digital technology has transformed almost every aspect of our lives since the last Data Protection Act was passed.

The Data Protection Bill will:

  • Make our data protection laws fit for the digital age in which an ever increasing amount of data is being processed.
  • Empower people to take control of their data.
  • Support UK businesses and organisations through the change.
  • Ensure that the UK is prepared for the future after we have left the EU.
