Kenya IGF Online Discussions Day 2: Strengthening Data Security in the Context of Emerging Trends

Hi,
I am concerned about the culture of data misuse where custodians of
personal information use information they have collected for other
purposes. This is tied to lack of data minimization in business operations
and lack of consent on data use.

I hope with the incoming laws, there will be clear guidelines on prior
consent before collection and processing of data. I also hope that despite
all our security challenges, a data minimization culture will be inculcated
in the KYC process.
