Introduction of the Data Protection Law 2020 in DIFC

With rising concerns over the free movement of Personal Data and the minimal rights in place to protect the movement of data, a number of countries have come up with their own data protection laws. In the UAE, the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) has issued a new data protection law called ’Data Protection Law 2020’. The Law has come into force from 1 July 2020.

The Law applies within the jurisdiction of the DIFC and was created to set guidelines regarding the processing of Personal Data. Organizations incorporated within DIFC or operating within DIFC need to note that Data Protection compliance is not a one-time compliance. It is a continuous journey to follow Data Protection regulations and maintain compliances on an ongoing basis to avoid any penalties or legal actions.
