The Report also discusses the consequences of Brexit on data protection:
We consider, were the UK to remain in the EU, that the new General Data Protection Regulation, which clarifies the meaning of key terms such as “personal data”, is likely to be beneficial overall to businesses processing personal data across borders, and to data subjects themselves. … If the UK were to leave the EU, Council of Europe Convention 108 would require the UK to continue to adhere to comparable data protection standards, although the EU might insist on UK law closely matching the EU rules as a condition for entering into a “safe harbour” agreement enabling personal data to be freely exchanged between the EU and UK.
