According to the NDMO, what is KSA Personal Data Protection Management?
KSA Personal Data Protection Management refers to the system, policies, and procedures implemented by organizations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to protect the privacy and confidentiality of personal data in accordance with the Saudi Arabian Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) regulations.
The National Digital Transformation Unit (NDMO) in KSA is responsible for overseeing and enforcing data protection laws and regulations, including the Saudi Data Protection Law (SDPL) that came into effect on July 28, 2020.
The KSA Personal Data Protection Management framework includes the following components:
1. Data protection policies and procedures: Organizations must develop and implement comprehensive data protection policies and procedures to ensure that personal data is collected, processed, stored, and shared in compliance with the Saudi Arabia’s PDPL
2. Data classification and mapping: Organizations must classify and map all personal data they collect and process to identify the level of protection required for each type of data.
3. Data privacy impact assessments (DPIA): Organizations must conduct DPIAs to identify and assess the risks associated with the processing of personal data protection.
4. Security controls: Organizations must implement appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
5. Data breach management: Organizations must establish procedures to detect, report, and respond to data breaches.
6. Training and awareness: Organizations must provide regular training to employees on data protection policies and procedures and raise awareness about the importance of protecting personal data.
By implementing a KSA Personal Data Protection Management framework, organizations can ensure compliance with the SDPL and protect the privacy and confidentiality of personal data.
