DIFC Data Protection Refresher for Compliance Specialists
On 22 April 2015, Nick O’Connell, Senior Associate of the TMT practice gave an interactive seminar on Data Protection at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Dubai. Nick provided attendees with a refresher on the DIFC Data Protection Law, and discussed how personal data may be processed and transferred in accordance with DIFC legal requirements. Participants were primarily in-house legal and compliance specialists from DIFC registered banks and other entities. Judging from questions and comments arising, the seminar was timely, relevant and useful.
