Why UK businesses could face a £1.6bn data compliance cost…and how eXate can help


As the UK awaits the outcome from ongoing Brexit negotiations, it appears as though the data compliance industry could be one of the worst hit.


In a recent report by the New Economics Foundation that highlights the economic impact on UK businesses as a result of an EU Data Adequacy decision not being secured, the cost to businesses in ‘pure compliance’ terms could be between £1bn and £1.6bn.


Although the UK has high standards of data protection via the Data Protection Act 2018, which enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in UK law, an EU adequacy decision is not guaranteed.


Achieving compliance across a wealth of new international data privacy laws and regulations is a growing challenge, and one that will continue to cost UK-based companies greatly in terms of time and money. In other words, EU businesses will no longer be able to freely transfer data from the EU to the UK without putting in place their own additional measures, creating additional barriers to inbound data flows from the EU.
