As the face of the world changes once again and governmental sanctions loom on the horizon, what happens with global data protection levels when one country decides to allow or disallow technology to cross its borders?

For example, how will Brexit impact the global technology rules?

We bring in regulatory experts to take on this increasingly daunting and international issue.
