Unhindered and unimpeded cybercrime data exchange is indeed crucial both for the UK and EU. Most governmental agencies may require a crystal-clear legal framework to proceed after Brexit, especially when the information involves legally-protected data or cases of criminal prosecution.

However, given the essential role British law enforcement agencies play in the continental fight with cybercrime, I am pretty confident a solution will emerge in a timely manner. In any case, private parties and cybersecurity companies will likely have a safe harbor to cooperate even before formal agreements are inked.
