How to overcome data security compliance challenges in the GCC countries

There are an increasing number of data security laws and regulations both in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries and internationally that organisations must be aware of.

In the GCC region this includes Qatar’s DPL (Data Privacy Law), the UAE’s Cybercrime Law and the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

In response to a rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape, GCC organisations must adopt stronger, smarter and more robust data security solutions.

Implementing an ISMS (information security management system) that is certified to the international standard ISO 27001 will enable GCC organisations to:

  • Avoid financial penalties;
  • Protect information and intellectual property rights;
  • Protect their reputation;
  • Satisfy audit requirements;
  • Gain a competitive advantage with new and existing clients; and
  • Build global trust.
