Privacy Around the Globe: Dubai International Financial Centre

Original broadcast date: 12 April 2023

This month in our Privacy Around the Globe series, we turn our attention to the Dubai International Financial Centre. In this LinkedIn Live series, we virtually travel around the world for an up-close analysis of the current and future state of privacy in a particular region. For this session, IAPP Vice President and Chief Knowledge Officer Caitlin Fennessy, CIPP/US, will speak with DIFC Vice President, Legal and Director of Data Protection Lori Baker, CIPP/E, CIPT, FIP. The pair will discuss the uniqueness of standing up a privacy law and a data protection regulator in a free zone, what that means, and the opportunities and challenges it presents. The two will cover data transfers, ethical data sharing, government access and where privacy professionals should be focused. Watch the full recording on LinkedIn.
