Data Protection

The government has announced data protection reforms to boost economic growth and protect the public, capitalising on our freedom as a sovereign trading nation as we build back better.

  • Data is one of the world’s most important resources and we all want our laws to take a common sense approach to benefit our economy and society. 
     
  • That is why the government has announced reforms which will keep people’s data safe and secure – imposing tougher penalties and fines for nuisance calls and text messages – while taking a common sense approach to cookie banners and launching a commission to examine what can be done to mitigate algorithmic bias. 
     
  • This will help to unleash data’s power across the economy and society, for the benefit of people and businesses across the UK.
