Elias R. Chedid speaks at the 5th annual global Cyber Security Forum, which was held in Lebanon


Elias Chedid was a guest speaker at the 5th annual global Cyber Security Forum which, for the first time, was held in Lebanon on September 18, 2019.

This highly successful event, which was hosted by the Lebanese Civil Aviation Authority, explored the recent developments in the field of cyber security.

Elias Chedid presented Lebanon’s new e-transactions & data protection law No. 81/2018. He discussed the challenges of its implementation and the reasons behind the delays in implementing certain aspects of it.

He detailed the political, institutional and regulatory barriers this implementation is currently facing, but also those of the law’s provisions that are already self-implementing.

The event hosted around 250 key decision makers from Lebanon’s private and public sectors who came together to deliberate on the current technology and the new cyber policies in Lebanon.

Elias was presented with an award by the Director of Flight Safety at the Lebanese Civil Aviation Authority and the conference’s chairperson, thanking him for his contribution to the forum as a legal and regulatory expert of e-commerce, data protection and TMT more generally.
