Comparing the pros and cons of data protection and privacy legislation and the need for a global response

Privacy law refers to the laws that deal with the regulation, storing, and using of personally identifiable information of individuals, which can be collected by governments, public or private organisations, or other individuals. This presentation will explore why a global effort is important to make our privacy and data safe and why a silo approach is not the answer internationally. Susi will explain what the major countries have in place regarding privacy acts (e.g. GDPR, POPIA) and how they compare. She will also discuss the African continent and how we as a global community can make our privacy and data safe again.

  • Why a privacy act?
  • Why a global effort?
  • How do privacy acts compare with each other internationally?
  • Where are African countries with privacy acts?
  • Revealing a comparison study between privacy acts, which highlights the strictest act yet (released in January 2020)
