Grand Cayman, 11 April 2022 - The Department of
Commerce and Investment (DCI) is investigating an incident that
occurred on 5 April, involving the personal data of individuals
associated with a small number of licensees.

non-financial businesses and professions (DNFBPs), and a system fix
is in testing prior to the system being reactivated. DCI also has
notified the Office of the Ombudsman, and is continuing to take
action in compliance with the Data Protection Act.

Notices relating to the incident have been issued.
