Nigeria will on Saturday, January 28, 2023 join the international community to observe Global Data Privacy Day 2023. It is a Day that has been set aside to create awareness of fundamental rights and freedoms relating to the privacy of citizens in the data processing ecosystem.

This is contained in a press advisory inked by Head, Legal Enforcement and Regulations at NDPB, Babatunde Bamigboye Esq.

Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, will flag-off the National Privacy Week with a press conference on the Global Data Privacy Day. The National Privacy Week also coincides with the one year anniversary of the establishment of the Bureau.

The NDPB under the leadership of Dr. Vincent Olatunji as its National Commissioner and CEO will set-up an Accelerated Data Breach Remediation unit to resolve petitions from data subjects within the National Privacy Week.
