Interview: Chief Legal Officer Jacques Visser of the Dubai International Financial Centre Authority

Established in 2004, the Dubai International Financial Centre (‘DIFC’) is home to 1,750 companies, making it one of the world’s leading financial centres. By implementing its own laws and regulations, which are administered by the DIFC Authority, the DIFC is independent from the United Arab Emirates’ (‘UAE’) civil and commercial laws. By basing its laws on international best practices, the DIFC has aimed to create an effective data protection regime. Jacques Visser, Chief Legal Officer of the DIFC Authority, talks to Data Protection Leader about the latest data protection developments in the DIFC.
