Judith Ratcliffe

Data Protection Consultant, Freelance

Judith is a Data Protection & Privacy Professional and writer, who has been Championing Individuals’ Rights and helping organisations and Government Departments get Data Protection & Privacy Right for the best part of a decade. She attends many conferences and events, asking questions that really make Industry and Thought Leaders think more deeply about Data Protection & Privacy-related matters and the importance of integrating them into their work and designs.

She holds the GDPR CIPP/E Qualification at Foundation & Practitioner levels, a B.A. Honours in English Literature from Royal Holloway, University of London and was Called to the Bar by The Honourable Society of The Inner Temple in 2010, but please be aware that she cannot and does not give Legal Advice and is not a fully qualified barrister.

Any advice and guidance she provides is Compliance Advice and Guidance, only.

Her views are entirely her own (and not those of any former employer), she will not be speaking about any of her former employers, and nothing that she says should be taken to be Legal Advice.

If you do feel you/ your organisation need Legal Advice, after listening to her speak, please get in touch with any Solicitor or Barrister of your own choice.

Her top 3 predictions for the Future of Data Protection & Privacy are:

1)    The UK Government will put in place a National Data Protection & Privacy Strategy by 2023.

2)    Smart Motorways will either cease to exist, or will have a proper hard shoulder put back on them, by 2024 because of accidents, breakdowns and because of the number of deaths caused by not having one.

3)    There will be a ban on use of Biometrics in Public Places in the UK by 2025.
