As the need for data protection,privacy and legislation grow in Nigeria,we recently got the information on the the establishment of DataLaws Nigeria Limited, a new breed Data Protection and Privacy consultancy.

DataLaws provides consultancy advice, training and capacity building in the areas of Data Protection and Privacy with the focus of leading Data Protection and Privacy consultancy in Africa.led by F.Franklin Akinsuyi who has over 16 years hands on consultancy experience providing advice to global organisations in the areas of Data

Protection, Privacy and Information Security,He said” DataLaws has been established in Nigeria to raise awareness of the need for Nigeria to implement regimes to protect its citizens data as well assisting in providing advice on how Nigeria can achieve new revenue streams by establishing frameworks for participating in the lucrative outsourcing industry.DataLaws knows that It is time for Nigeria to tap into this opportunity by getting its foundations right this includes implementing an appropriate Data Protection and Privacy regime from the ground up. This will involve training the up and coming generation on the need to protect their personal information”.He also added that DataLaws sees the need for implementing Data Protection and Privacy legislation as an important stake in the ground to achieve this aim.Data protection and privacy legislation are as important as cybercrime legislations and both work in parallel to reduce cybercrime activity by setting out ground rules for engagement.

 

Franklin Akinsuyi,Founding Partner DataLaws

Franklin who has written several articles on Data laws, strongly believes from his experience in providing advice to global organisations who have had to prepare their environments to current and more stringent upcoming data protection and privacy legislations that Nigerians needs to understand the impact of outsourcing Nigerian citizens data outside of the country.Technologies such as Big Data, Outsourcing and Cloud Computing can have serious and devastating negative effects that can compromise Nigeria’s National Security if not managed correctly.

“Let me point out that without proper data protection and privacy laws we cant even begin to look at outsourcing on a large scale. As it stands right now, there are National security issues at stake as we do not know where and who has access to important individuals personal information”said Mr Akinsuyi during our discussion.
