Appleby Launch Offshore Data Protection Guide

July 8, 2020

Appleby has launched an Offshore Data Protection Guide to “provide a detailed overview of the privacy and cybersecurity regimes in eight of the world’s leading offshore jurisdictions.”

A spokesperson said, “The guide offers businesses quick answers to some of the most critical issues related to data protection.

“In addition to outlining local data protection frameworks, the guide provides valuable regulatory information on everything from collecting personal information and obtaining valid consent to law enforcement and international transfers of personal data.”

“The global evolution of regulation and the meteoric rise of technology, together with cybersecurity concerns and obligations imposed by international data sharing regimes such as FATCA, make the protection and use of personal data more complex than ever before,” said Appleby partner Richard Field. “We have developed this guide to make critical information easily accessible for business leaders and to help them navigate these challenges.”

The company added, “Appleby’s global privacy and information management team, headed by Richard Field and Peter Colegate, has long-standing expertise in data protection and information security regulation. The team has a wealth of practical experience advising clients on pan-jurisdiction data protection matters on a global basis, including the interaction between local legislation and GDPR.

“Appleby’s Data Protection Guide currently includes Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Cayman, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Mauritius and the Seychelles. The guide may be viewed here.”
