Legal Outreach Session – DIFC updated data protection law


DIFC is pleased to invite you to a legal outreach session on the updated data protection law, which is nearing final enactment and will come into force over the summer of 2020.

The updated Data Protection Law and Regulations set out expectations for Controllers and Processors in the DIFC regarding several key privacy and security principles.  It combines the best practices from a variety of current, world class data protection laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act and other forward-thinking, technology agnostic concepts to enable the DIFC to be a leading financial and technology center promoting ethical data sharing.

The session will cover the following:

  • Key changes to the law
  • How it may affect your business
  • Where the Commissioner’s Office plans to lead the DIFC next
