KICTANet’s draft policy brief on data protection in Kenya

Dear Listers


In the last two decades, Kenya mobile communications and internet
connectivity have rapidly increased. With these developments, the
country has also developed a data economy. The data economy is the
wealth and resources created from collection and processing of data.
It is the cornerstone of the fourth industrial revolution which uses
digital technologies to carry out processes, be they physical,
digital, or biological. A key feature of the revolution is data-driven
decision making, creation of new products, services and innovation. 

A team of KICTANet listers have been working to produce a draft policy
brief on Data Protection in Kenya which I attach.  We would
appreciate your comments on it as it is still being reviewed. We will
be receiving comments in the next two weeks (until May 25, 2018).

Thanks alot good people. 

Best regards
