Post-Brexit flow of data between EU and UK at risk after Dutch concerns over data protection

With Brexit, the legal framework covering the flow of data between the EU and UK is being redesigned, and the Guardian reports that after a series of scandals, the Netherlands has raised concerns over the robustness of British checks and controls over personal data. The Netherlands expressed its concerns after the abuse by the UK of an EU system for monitoring the movement of people at borders. In the context of Brexit, EU member states will soon need to agree on the adequacy of the UK’s protections of European citizens data.
