The issues of data protection and cyber security are increasingly important for global businesses, educational establishments and private individuals. Join us for the first ACS Doha Data Protection and Privacy Conference and hear from leading experts currently working in data protection and cyber security.
Qatar was the first state in the region to recognise in formal legislation the importance of protecting data privacy. The Qatari Data Protection Law, published in November 2016, carried important compliance implications for all organisations in Qatar that process personal data. It is part of a worldwide effort to frame data protection considerations in statutory guidance and law.
The ACS Data Protection and Privacy Conference will address the most important questions that educational institutions must consider as they review the ways they process the personal data of their students, staff and other stakeholders. It will include advice to guide the change process, and feature guest speakers and presenters from bodies within and outside of Qatar who will discuss the challenges and the benefits of the new data landscape we all face. If your organisation is handling personal data, and if you are interested in best practice, we are confident this conference will be helpful to you.
ACS Doha welcomes the participation of other Doha educational establishments and other organisations at this conference. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Conference attendees can choose from a variety of workshops by leading experts in this important area, including:
- Introduction to Qatar’s Data Protection Law and its implications for Educational Establishments

- Assuring Data Privacy and Sound Data Governance across your Community
