GDPR – CERTIFIED DATA PROTECTION OFFICER TRAINING (CDPO December)
December 4 @ 9:00 am – December 8 @ 5:00 pm
Naivasha – Physical & Virtual Instructor-Led training.
In Kenya, as in many parts of the world, the protection of personal data has emerged as a pivotal concern in an increasingly digital society. Against this backdrop, the notion of consent has become a cornerstone of data protection laws—a fundamental guarantee that individuals have a say in how their personal information is collected, processed, and shared. Yet, as we delve into the intricacies of consent management, it becomes alarmingly clear that this vital safeguard is often more of a mirage than a meaningful defense of privacy.
The recent ODPC fines experienced by Mulla Pride Ltd, Casa Vera Lounge, and Roma School are a clear indication that the misalignment between consent management and data protection laws has far-reaching implications.
Empowering Organizations and Navigating the Complex Terrain of Data Protection
In Kenya’s ever-evolving digital landscape, the mirage of consent in data protection laws can be daunting. Recent fines have underlined the real-world consequences of misaligned practices. To navigate this complex terrain effectively, organizations must equip their relevant personnel with a deep understanding of data protection principles and practices. This understanding extends far beyond the legal requirements; it embodies a commitment to safeguarding privacy rights and maintaining ethical data processing.
