Role of SDAIA

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is investing heavily in data security for improved government effectiveness and transparency. The Kingdom has set up Interim Regulations to ensure that its internal and external entities apply stringent measures for personal data processing. The regulations also define the role of the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) and its sub-entity, the National Data Management Office (NDMO). Organizations need a new approach in securing and governing their data – both inside and outside organizational boundaries. Seclore can help entities inside and outside of KSA comply with the relevant Interim Regulations and achieve comprehensive data governance for their information.
