Can Theresa May get the data protection deal she wants?

Twice now — first at a speech focused on security, in Munich, then this past Friday in her so-called “Five Tests” speech detailing her goals for Brexit — U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has outlined her desire for a data protection agreement with the EU, that is “more than just an adequacy arrangement”.

While some in the privacy field have openly wondered whether the U.K. can even get adequacy, given the Snooper’s Charter and other surveillance considerations, May is unequivocal in wanting more than that, including a role for the ICO in the so-called one-stop-shop enforcement regimen of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, which would seem to indicate a desire for the ICO to be able to serve as lead authority and as a member of the to-be-created European Data Protection Board when the GDPR comes into force.
