IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
Last Updated on November 19, 2023
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has a Federal Telecommunication Law ( Federal Law) which requires that a company must hold a license in order to provide public communications services and operate public telecommunication networks. Under this Federal Law, a Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) was established which regulates the telecommunication sector in the UAE. The TRA is involved in ensuring cybersecurity and hosting the UAE's Computer Emergency Response Team. The TRA also actively regulates consumer protection and has recently issued an updated Consumer Protection Regulations (CPR). The CPR has few provisions that directly relate to the data privacy of subscribers to telecommunication services. Under the CPR, a licensed company shall take all reasonable measures to protect the privacy of the subscriber’s information that it maintains in its files, whether in electronic or paper form. Furthermore, licensees shall use reliable security measures against risks such as loss or unauthorised access, destruction, leakage, inappropriate use, modification and/or unauthorised disclosure.
Securiti enables organizations to comply with the TRA CPR through AI-driven PI data discovery, DSR automation, documented accountability, enhanced visibility into data processing activities, and AI-driven process automation.
