In March 2019, the Dominican Republic's National Cybersecurity Council held a meeting to approve the National Cybersecurity Strategy 2018-2021. During this meeting, several action points related to identity management, cybersecurity incident management, and data confidentiality were stressed. This will have far-reaching implications for both businesses and consumers; consumers will gain extra protection over their digital identities while businesses will be required to protect user data from cyberattacks.

The "Cyber Security and Information Regulation in the Dominican Republic" document is a continuation to what is already preserved in the country's constitution as a fundamental right.

All persons have the right to access to the information and facts about them or their property that reside in official or private registers, as well as to know the destination and the uses of the same, with the limitations fixed by law. Treatment of personal facts or information or that regarding property shall be made respecting the principles of quality, lawfulness, loyalty, security, and finality. One may solicit the updating, oppose the treatment, rectification, or destruction of that information that illegitimately affects his rights from before the appropriate judicial authority.

- Article 44.2 of the Dominican Republic's Constitution

The Dominican Republic is currently ranked 63rd in the world in the National Cybersecurity Index. As businesses adopt better practices and effective solutions to adhere to the cybersecurity regulations, we can expect the ranking to improve.
