Al Tamimi & Company’s Digital & Data team provides local and international clients with world-class, specialist legal support across the full spectrum of data related issues.
The increased use of technology in both the private and public sector has led to a growing interest in data and data protection issues across the Middle East and North Africa. Developments ranging from the adoption of cloud-based solutions to the compliance with patient health information management requirements are resulting in increased scrutiny around data, and issues to do with data privacy, data ownership rights and information security.
The expectations of consumers, businesses and governments with regard to how data is used, and where it is stored and processed, do not always align. The situation can be particularly complex in the Middle East and North Africa, where the countries in the region are seeking to balance policy concerns relating to consumer protection and national security with the need to remain somewhat ‘in-step’ with international developments and expectations.
Our experience ranges from advising on day to day HR compliance issues through to complex cloud-related advisory and international data transfers issues, data breach and cyber incident response, and other data-related regulatory compliance concerns. Our advice is practical and informed by our familiarity with the sectors in which our clients operate, and our knowledge of the relevant legal and regulatory landscapes in other sophisticated jurisdictions.
We hope that you find our “Data Protection Resource Hub” useful, and please check back for future updates. Of course, we will be pleased to assist with any specific queries.
