In today’s increasingly interconnected and digital world, personal data has never been more readily available, easily processed and shared across borders.
There is increasing importance to protect and safeguard the personal data of your key stakeholders from accidental or unlawful loss, disclosure and access to protect their right to privacy.
Where personal data is inadequately protected or mishandled, it could lead to personal data theft or loss, resulting in significant consequences for your business such as financial loss, reputational damage, and regulatory fines.
This, along with the increasing focus both internationally and in regional centres such as the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) to protect personal data, emphasises the need for your business to implement effective systems to safeguard the data you hold. It also highlights the importance to allocate responsibility for compliance with the Data Protection Legislation.
