Under the National Vision 2030, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is paving the way for a new era by improving government efficiency and transparency, encouraging economic diversification driven by data and technology, and taking a more significant part in the global economy built on public trust and international partnerships.

To set the necessary policies and regulations for data classification, data sharing, data privacy, freedom of information, open data, and other areas in anticipation of necessary legislation, the National Data Management Office (NDMO), the national regulator of data in the Kingdom, developed the National Data Management and Personal Data Protection Standards (the “Standards”) for national data governance for government entities.

15 Data Management and Personal Data Protection domains are covered by the Standards. Saudi’s public entities must implement the Standards. In addition to public entities, the scope of the Standards also extends to business partners handling government data. Such business partners are responsible for understanding and applying the Standards to all government data assets within their control and custody.

Furthermore, all forms and types of government data, including paper records, emails, data saved electronically, voice recordings, films, maps, pictures, scripts, handwritten documents, and other recorded data, are covered by the Standards.

Data Management and Personal Data Protection Framework

The Data Management and Personal Data Protection Framework consists of 15 domains that cover the data lifecycle from creation, storage, movement, and usage, to retirement.


Data Governance

To ensure consistent and proper handling of the organization's data assets in alignment with its Data Management and Personal Data Protection Strategy, Data Governance provides the authority and control over the planning and implementation of the data management practices through people, processes, and technologies.


Data Catalog and Metadata

Data Catalog and Metadata provide efficient access to high-quality, integrated metadata. The Data Catalog automated tool, which serves as the single point of reference for the organizations' metadata, facilitates access to metadata.


Data Quality

Data quality focuses on enhancing the organization's data quality and ensuring that data is suitable for use in accordance with customer needs.


Data Operations

The Data Operations domain aims to optimize the value of data during its lifecycle, from creation/acquisition through disposal.


Document and Consent Management

Regulating the collection, holding, usage, and access to documents and content kept outside relational databases.


Data Architecture and Modelling

Data Architecture and Modelling focuses on creating formal data structures and data flow channels to enable end-to-end data processing across and within entities.


Reference and Master Data Management

All crucial data can be linked to a single master file using reference and master data management, creating a single reference point for all crucial data.


Business Intelligence and Analytics
