UK data laws are adequate. For now.  
By Frank Jennings, The Cloud Lawyer.   

The EU Commission has issued draft decisions that UK data laws are adequate for data transfers to continue. Perhaps the only surprise was that it took the Commission so long to issue these draft decisions. After all, the UK has had data protection laws longer than the EU. The latest iteration, GDPR, became enforceable in 2018 in the UK just as it did in the other EU member states. And the EU Withdrawal Act preserved its effect in the UK. All part of the political fun and games in the Brexit negotiations.
