Abstract

The UK’s digital economy is currently growing at twice the rate of the wider economy, and now contributes an estimated £97 billion per annum to the economy. As such, the Prime Minister has singled growth in the technology industry as a priority for the UK after leaving the EU. Understanding the implications of Brexit for the tech industry requires us to think about the changes to the UK’s regulatory framework once EU law ceases to apply, and the constraints that EU law imposes even after Brexit.

Keywords: Brexit, tech industry, privacy law, data protection, GDPR
