Panel discussion: Data Protection and Privacy Are No Longer Soft Options for UAE Businesses
09:30 AM - 10:15 AM

UAE businesses face compliance demands in many areas, and data protection is now one of the most complex and demanding challenges for compliance teams.

PrivSec MENA will consider how the UAE's federal and regional data protection laws are impacting businesses operating in the country, and how wider MENA developments are making strong data protection controls a vital component of operating in the region.

Panel discussion: What's the Future of Data Protection Regulation in Dubai and the Wider MENA Region?
14:30 - 15:15

In recent years, data protection regulation has accelerated in the MENA region, with robust privacy laws springing up in countries such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and Bahrain, with further data protection laws in sight for a range of other states across the Gulf and North Africa.

PrivSec MENA will look forward to the years ahead and help privacy professionals prepare for future developments in the MENA region.

Panel discussion: Third-Party Risk: Securing Your Supply Chain for Businesses Operating in MENA
15:45 - 16:30

MENA businesses engage with increasingly long and complex supply chains, with multiple vendors operating in a broad range of contexts.

But with every new vendor you increase your risk of ransomware and other supply chain-focused attacks upstream, and create new liabilities downstream.

PrivSec MENA will help you gain better control over your vendors and learn how to defend against the increasingly broad and harmful range of threats that can arise through your supply chain.

Panel discussion: International Data Transfers Between MENA Countries and Beyond
16:30 - 17:15

International data transfers are among the biggest challenges facing data protection professionals in the current climate. And the issue doesn't only arise for companies operating in Europe—MENA countries are also introducing increasingly strict controls on the export and import of data.

PrivSec MENA will examine the existing rules on cross-border transfers affecting companies operating in the MENA region, and help you ensure the free flow of data across your business and its partners.
