Drafted around a set of internationally recognised privacy principles, the new law provides a framework of rights and duties designed to give individuals greater control over their personal data. The DPL joins the Confidential Information Disclosure Law, 2016 and common law obligations of confidentiality to give the Cayman Islands the most comprehensive data protection regime in the region. 

Appleby recently authored an article for Hedge Fund Law Report discussing the effects of the DPL on the Funds industry.  Please click below to view to full article, and do not hesitate to get in touch with your usual Appleby contact if you have any questions.
