The ICO has published even more guidance on what a no deal Brexit would mean. This is most important and you really do need to take a look. In summary the ICO states that if we leave the EU without a deal, most of the data protection rules affecting small to medium-sized businesses and organisations will stay the same. If you are a UK business or organisation that already complies with the GDPR and has no contacts or customers in the EEA, you do not need to do much more to prepare for data protection compliance after Brexit.

If you are a UK business or organisation that receives personal data from contacts in the EEA, you need to take extra steps to ensure that the data can continue to flow after Brexit and if you are a UK business or organisation with an office, branch or other established presence in the EEA, or if you have customers in the EEA, you will need to comply with both UK and EU data protection regulations after Brexit. You may need to designate a representative in the EEA.
