DIFC brings its new data protection law in line with international best practices




The DIFC data protection law does not set a maximum limit for fines, similar to the GDPR, but gives the commissioner the discretion to impose a general fine in addition to the fines, said a leading lawyer.

Violations of the GDPR can result in significant fines of up to EUR 10 million or EUR 20 million or 2% or 4% of an organization’s worldwide annual turnover in the previous financial year, depending on the provisions of the law that was violated.
