Webinar: Data protection in the Middle East and Africa feat. Nigerian Data Protection Commissioner

The "new normal" of global data protection regulation is becoming increasingly complex. With 37 African countries having a comprehensive data protection legal framework and the rapid development of privacy laws in the Middle East, all organisations providing products and/or services in the MEA region or that are otherwise doing business there need to ensure they understand their obligations and compliance risks. You can view our 23 January 2024 webinar on data protection in the Middle East and Africa to understand the key legal considerations and risks.

We are pleased to share with you the video recording of our Webinar on Data Protection in the Middle East and Africa with our Special Guest, Dr Vincent Olatunji, CEO and Commissioner of the Nigeria Data Protection Commission. The presentation touches upon key privacy considerations including consent, legitimate interest (and lack thereof), direct marketing, DPA registration, data transfers, localisation, sensitive data, children's data, breach notification, data subject rights, sanctions and enforcement, etc. In addition, our guest speaker shared his views and actions on enforcement.
