Will the Middle East become the next big tech market? If so, what should your Cloud adoption journey look like?

The past year has seen rapid growth in cloud computing in the Middle East, with major suppliers (such as Microsoft and Amazon) offering a range of cloud services in the region.

Recent regional cloud policy initiatives, the increase in uptake of cloud computing as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as related data privacy concerns demonstrate that now, more than ever, it is vital for stakeholders in the Middle East to understand how to regulate the use of the cloud, and how to enter into cloud computing contracts.


This webinar, with guest speakers Baptiste Cazagou from Microsoft and Pascal Dutru from Qatar Communications Regulatory Authority, hosted by Pinsent Masons’ Partner Diane Mullenex will discuss:

  • how cloud computing services can be used;
  • how stakeholders (such as government regulators and key suppliers) can work together to develop effective regulations around cloud computing and data privacy; and
  • some tips on how public and private entities (including SMEs) can interpret and negotiate key provisions in cloud computing agreements.
