Article 31 of the UAE Constitution states that “freedom of communication by post, telegraph or other means of communication and the secrecy thereof shall be guaranteed in accordance with the law”. In addition, the Penal Code establishes criminal offences in relation to the disclosure or use of “secrets”, i.e. personal data, or the interception or disclosure of correspondence or telephone conversations.
Organizations operating within the UAE should also be aware of Federal Laws No.3 and No.5 of 2012, which respectively establish the National Electronic Security Authority (NESA) and combat cybercrimes. NESA has been charged with putting together policies and standards to ensure electronic security as well as suggesting further legislation in support of its goals and such legislation, policies and standards are likely to impact the processing and storage of personal data in the UAE. The cybercrimes law criminalizes a number of activities relating to the unauthorized access, amendment, interception, damage or use of certain types of data.
