  • Virtual

PrivacyConnect brings together local privacy professionals in their communities to discuss the latest trends in privacy and security, review regulatory updates, and share best practices for implementing privacy programs in practice.


The KSA Personal Data Protection Law is a paradigm shift aligning the Kingdom to best practices of Data Protection Internationally.  The Law comes into effect on 23 March 2022 and controlling entities will have 1 year from this date to achieve compliance.


The Law applies to the processing of personal data of individuals in the Kingdom and to processing by any entity outside the Kingdom in respect of data subjects inside the Kingdom. There are several familiar data protection principles and obligations present. These include accountability, purpose limitation, transparency, accuracy, the appointment of a data protection officer (DPO), a requirement for records of processing activities and data protection impact assessments.


Translating the requirements can be difficult and the skills sets may not be readily available internally. Join our virtual fireside chat and have your questions answered by subject matter experts, thought leaders and privacy professionals.
