Upcoming GCC Data Privacy & Protection Webinar in Conjunction with Thomson Reuters
All the key GCC jurisdictions have now enacted various types of data protection and privacy laws to regulate how information is collected, how data subjects are informed and what control a data subject has over their information once it is transferred. The legislative landscape in the GCC has changed considerably over the last few years as it catches up to European and US data protection regimes. We would like to give our experiences so far as local GCC counsel to our valued clients and friends in our new upcoming webinar.
Please join us as we discuss the same on Tuesday, 21 March 2023 at 2:00 pm GST at our webinar titled Data Protection in the GCC.
