    View Author April 2018
    To date, no international regulation for personal data protection exists, but the emergence of regulatory frameworks for personal data are having a cross-border impact. Regulation of the use of personal data, however, faces the major difficulty of reconciling security and transparency on one hand, commercial exploitation on the other. In this interview for MENA Business Law Review, partner Scott A. Warren addresses questions such as:
    • What are the coming challenges in the next few years regarding data protection?
    • Do all Gulf countries have an effective legal arsenal in the data privacy protection domain?
    • What is the latest data protection legislation that has been adopted in the Middle East?
