2021 is likely to be a major year for data protection policy and practice.
Data has been at the heart of the Scotland’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. From the Protect Scotland app, to online learning, to coronavirus testing, the public sector has had to collect and use data in new ways, often at pace, to meet unexpected challenges.
As we emerge from the pandemic organisations will need to consider whether many of these new measures remain appropriate and proportionate, whilst still maintaining the positive progress on data sharing developed in the 12 months.
Meanwhile the impact of Brexit and Schrems II are still to be fully felt. Will the United Kingdom forge its own approach to data protection that differs from GDPR?
