PRIVACY AND DATA PROTECTION

Due to the growth and development of technology, companies are heavily reliant on electronic databases and centralised IT systems for the storage, handling and transfer of personal data. Personal data constitutes a valuable corporate resource and is increasingly shared and transferred across the world, as it becomes akin to a small global village. Therefore, corporate organisations of all sizes must think strategically about threats to their data and implement appropriate security, protection and risk management practices, because when data breaches escalate, regulatory pressures increase. Privacy and data protection concerns exist in each stage of a company’s life cycle. Our expert lawyers have extensive experience in monitoring regulatory and legal changes, compliance and risk issues, and developing comprehensive data protection frameworks to respond to external and internal threats. We pride ourselves in assisting the National Information Technology Agency (NITDA) in overhauling the Data Protection Regulations in Nigeria.
