Securiti announces a $75M Series C Funding RoundView
On March 23, 2021, the parliament of Zambia formally enacted the Data Protection Act No. 3 of 2021 (DPA). The DPA provides a framework for collecting, using, and processing personal data, including storage and transfer, accords protections to personal data and sets out the rights of data subjects.
The DPA establishes the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner, which is responsible for the regulation of data protection and privacy in Zambia. Further, the DPA imposes responsibilities on data controllers and processors with respect to the protection of the personal information of data subjects.
Amongst other obligations, the DPA mandates data controllers and processors to respect the rights of data subjects, and follow the principles of lawfulness, fairness, transparency, purpose limitation, data minimization, storage limitation, and integrity and confidentiality of personal data.
The DPA provides for penalties in the form of fines and imprisonment in the event of its contravention.
