Egypt New Personal Data Privacy Law - Navigating Your Path to Compliance

Everything you need to know about the new personal data protection Law

& What it means for your organization

On 13 July 2020, the Egyptian government issued Law No. 151 of 2020 for personal data protection, which comes as the first of its kind in the history of the country’s legislative history to address the protection of citizens and residents’ personal data.

Companies collecting and handling personal data in Egypt will need to consider and manage their data handling practices and use cases more carefully than ever before.

Few organizations have a clear strategy and action plan to address the new law requirements while the vast majority are concerned about their ability to comply. Many organizations in Egypt are scrambling to understand the impact it will have including:
• Potential fines and legal costs and recourse
• Modifications to organizational processes, applications, and systems
• New and updated compliance requirements to be addressed
Compliance with the new law includes a coordinated strategy that incorporates different organizational entities across legal, contracts, human resources, marketing, security, IT and more.
