The Data Protection Bill: overview and summary

The Data Protection Bill contains some wonderful provisions. For example: “Chapter 2 of this Part applies for the purposes of the applied GDPR as it applies for the purposes of the GDPR. In this Chapter, “the applied Chapter 2” means Chapter 2 of this Part as applied by this Chapter.” And suchlike.

It is just possible that there are some of you who need to get your head around the Bill, but haven’t yet had the time or stomach for it. You are probably thinking “surely some data protection obsessive has read it and summarised it for me somewhere?”. As ever, Panopticon is the proud home of data protection obsessives. Here is a link to an overview of the Bill which I did for Practical Law. Enjoy!
