There have been significant changes and developments in the law regarding data protection, particularly in the European Union with GDPR. This has raised issues as to the level of awareness of data protection regulation in Africa. The increased use of technology and electronic means of transmitting, storing and retrieving data has given rise to an increased need to safeguard data privacy. This webinar will explore the exciting developments in this fast-growing area of the law.

Topics covered include:

  • Launching the Data Protection Guide for Bar Associations and Regulators in Africa
  • A review of the guide by a practitioner
  • A review of the guide by a data protection regulator
  • Exposition on the likely developments in data protection in Africa
