IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
Last Updated on November 28, 2023
Nigeria’s Data Protection Bill (the “Bill”), published by the National Information Technology Development Agency ('NITDA') on October 4, 2022, aims to create the Nigeria Data Protection Commission (the “Commission”), which will be responsible for regulating the processing of personal data and other similar matters.
The Bill outlines the requirements for the processing of personal data. It requires controllers to undertake Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) for high-risk data processing activities, appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) with expert knowledge of data protection laws, and ensure that personal data is processed lawfully and fairly, along with other obligations.
The Bill also sets out the framework for investigations, compliance orders, enforcement orders, judicial reviews, and civil remedies related to enforcement.
The Bill is currently under review by Nigeria’s Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy before its onward submission to the National Assembly for approval and eventual assent by the President. The legislation would come into force upon such assent by the President of Nigeria.
