The Cyber
Security Experts Association of Nigeria (CSEAN) has applauded the Nigerian House of Representative for the
passage of the Data Protection Bill, which provides for the establishment of the
Data Protection Commission.





The President
of CSEAN, Mr. Remi Afon, while
speaking to IT Pulse on the telephone, noted, though overdue, the association
is happy that the bill has finally been passed by the House of Representative,
hoping that the Senate will do same.





 The passage of the bill is a step
in the right direction and we commend the House of Representatives for passing
this bill which is long overdue. The next step is for the Senate to consider
the bill and approve it as a matter of urgency. Cyber Security Experts
Association of Nigeria has been advocating for Data Protection Law for the past
5years and we are delighted that legislative progress is being made,   he said.





Afon explained that the bill will be charged with the responsibility for the Protection of
Personal Data and Data Subjects' Rights and Regulation of the Processing of
Personal Information.  The bill, when finally signed into law, will see an
increase in the number of Data Protection Officers in the country,   he added.





In the today's world of big data
analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, where organisations
are making a fortune from data mining, the benefits of the Data Protection Bill
cannot be overemphasized. The bill contains strict rules called data protection
principles which  organisations, government and businesses must follow to
keep personal data accurate, safe and secure.





It also ensures that personal data
are used fairly and lawfully and not kept more than necessary. The bill, when
passed into law will ensure Nigerians personal data are protected.
