Today, data holds great value. It is driving a plethora of sectors around the world, contributing to research breakthroughs, innovations, and other advancements. Consequently, its protection holds importance as well because if it falls into the wrong hands, it could be catastrophic for an individual, a business, or even a nation. The Personal Data Protection Law (PDPL) is the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, focused on protecting the personal data of individuals while regulating businesses that collect, retain, analyze, process, and share it across borders.

PDPL came into force on March 17, 2023, and it has been regulated and enforced by the KSA regulatory authority, Saudi Data & Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA). The regulation provides a comprehensive set of provisions that relate to the processing of personal data, honoring data subject requests, meeting consent preferences, or setting out requirements and mechanisms for cross-border data transfers.
