The law addresses for the first time the processing of personal data via autonomous and semi-autonomous systems
On 18 April 2023, the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) launched a 30-day public consultation on the proposed amendments to the Personal Data Protection Regulations to establish additional areas of regulation that would support the strong implementation of the DIFC Data Protection Law No. 5 of 2020. The proposed amendments are aimed at enhancing the current data protection framework in the DIFC and addressing the means for better, safer and more ethical management of personal data processing and operations.
In this virtual event, Baker McKenzie lawyers shared their views and covered topics on how companies can protect their digital property, how digital solutions can be safely utilized and the regulatory implications of data usage for a business. Guest speakers also discussed considerations on how they are dealing with an ever-evolving digital environment and the regulatory implications to consider when organizations adapt new technologies and manage data usage.
Our upcoming “Deciphering Digital Transformation for Industrials” seminar on 14 February 2023 provides an opportunity to hear directly from Baker McKenzie’s digital transformation specialists and industrial leaders on their experience implementing digital change and insights on what risks to avoid for a successful transition.
