The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has published the names of organizations that have complied with the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) Audit filing system.
A statement by NITDA’s head of corporate affairs and external affairs, Mrs Hadiza Umar, said the list is an authoritative repository of organisations that have prioritised compliance with the NDPR and become reference points for global law firms, multinationals, investors and compliance enthusiasts. These organisations, NITDA said, have undergone the NDPR audit process to ascertain their level of compliance and areas for improvement. All the listed organisations have engaged a data protection compliance organisation (DPCO) to train their staff and to implement basic data protection protocols.
It said the list comprises 1,213 organisations from 13 sectors – health, transport & logistics, public sector, industrial and extractive, ICT and media, energy and power, education, finance, commerce and consulting – that contribute to Nigeria’s GDP.
