Cayman Islands Data Protection Law: An Ogier Client Guide

(Updated on 1 October, 2019)

On 30 September 2019 the long-awaited Data Protection Law, 2017 came into force in the Cayman Islands.

The Data Protection Law, 2017 introduces for the first time in the Cayman Islands a legislative framework on data protection that will apply to almost all entities which are either established in the Cayman Islands (including investment funds) or are otherwise processing personal data in the Cayman Islands.

We have produced a comprehensive guide which covers the key concepts and obligations that clients should be aware of.

The guide can be downloaded here.

Should you have any questions, we would be happy to discuss the implications of the Data Protection Law, 2017 for your business or organisation.

Please reach out to your usual Ogier contact or any member of our team included here.
