Webinar: Data Protection in West Africa

8 Oct 2020

9am - 10am GMT

It has been said that “the world's most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data.” This is especially in true in Africa, considered a testing ground for technologies produced elsewhere in the world and where regulation is growing steadily. In this fast-changing context, companies operating in Africa are facing challenges in keeping up with data protection laws and regulations, all the while dealing with an increasing risk of data breaches.

Join our teams in Nigeria, Ghana and Senegal for an in-depth look at how companies operating in West Africa can better prepare themselves to face these data protection challenges effectively.

Topics covered include:

  • Data protection laws and legislation in Nigeria, Ghana and Senegal
  • Controller/Administrator dichotomy
  • Obligations of a data controller
  • Data transfer issues
  • Benefits of compliance

This session will take place via Zoom and confirmation details will be sent via mail after registration. Please note that registration for this webinar is closed to other law firms in jurisdictions in which DLA Piper Africa has a presence.
