KSA’s Data Management and Personal Data Protection Standards
The National Data Management and Personal Data Protection Standards were created in
accordance with a directive from the Saudi Authority for Data and Artificial Intelligence, under
Cabinet Resolution number (292), dated 27/04/1441H. This directive instructed the National Data
Management Office to develop and implement policies, governance mechanisms, standards, and
controls for data and artificial intelligence, and to monitor compliance upon publication.
The framework is intended to be adopted by all Public Entities in the Kingdom. It also covers
business partners handling government data. These partners are responsible for understanding
and implementing the standards for all government data assets under their control. The Standards
apply to all government data, regardless of its form or type, such as paper records, emails,
electronic data, voice recordings, videos, maps, photos, scripts, handwritten documents, or any
other type of recorded data.
The National Data Management and Personal Data Protection Standards are a set of guidelines and regulations that apply to all government data, regardless of the form or type in which it is stored. These standards cover 15 domains related to data management and personal data protection, including areas such as data classification, storage, access, sharing and disposal. The purpose of these standards is to ensure that government data is managed in a secure, efficient, and effective manner, while also protecting the personal data of individuals.
The standards also help to ensure that government data is accurate, up-to-date, and available when needed. The application of these standards does not affect the competencies and tasks of the National Cyber Security Authority, which is responsible for cybersecurity and related matters in the Kingdom. Additionally, the Personal Data Protection Law and its executive regulations also apply to the protection of personal data, and these standards complement and support the implementation of those laws.
