National Privacy and Digital Awareness Campaign Design to Safeguard Personal Data & Create Jobs, Says NDPC

The planned introduction of the pre-inaugural National Privacy and Digital Awareness Campaign this week in Lagos, is designed to create awareness on the need to protect personal data and create jobs through the implementation of the Nigeria Data Protection Act (NDPA), 2023.

Announcing the plans for the campaign, the Dr. Vincent Olatunji, the National Commissioner/CEO of the Nigeria Data Protection Commission (NDPC), disclosed that the campaign is spearheaded by the Nigerian Stakeholders for Data Protection Awareness (NSDPA), and that is at educating Nigerian citizens, businesses, and organisations about the crucial importance of safeguarding personal data and privacy in the digital realm.

The primary objective of the campaign is to raise awareness on the significance of data protection and privacy, not only to foster a secure digital environment but also to stimulate job opportunities across Nigeria.

By empowering thousands of Nigerians to contribute their creativity to the campaign, the NSDPA seeks to deepen the value proposition of the National Awareness Campaign while simultaneously addressing critical issues in data protection.

Comprising seasoned professionals from various sectors, the NSDPA is united in its mission to promote strategic awareness regarding data protection and privacy throughout Nigeria.

Recognizing the pivotal role of such awareness in nurturing a robust digital economy, the campaign aims to reach citizens across all six geo-political zones of Nigeria.

The National Privacy and Digital Awareness Campaign, set to utilize extensive media resources, is a collaborative effort between the NSDPA and the NDPC. Its overarching aim is to assist the NDPC in achieving its strategic mandate of fostering a National Culture of Data Protection Awareness, aligning with the provisions outlined in the Nigeria Data Protection Act.

Through this campaign, Nigeria endeavours to create a safer and more secure digital environment while empowering its citizens with the knowledge and skills necessary to protect their personal data.
