NBA-ICLE To Hold A 4-Day Training on Data Protection

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to inform you that the 4-Day NBA-ICLE Data Protection Training will start on the 23rd of October and end on the 26th of October 2023.

We consider this training to be of moment because the recent presidential assent to the Nigeria Data Protection Act has further emphasised the importance of privacy and data protection for Nigerian businesses and legal practitioners.

The Act which came into force in June 2023 should interest lawyers for three major reasons. First, the Act, by its objectives, gives further effect to the fundamental right of privacy and other rights and freedoms. Secondly, it prescribes additional regulatory obligations for businesses and their vendors. Thirdly, the Act creates a new practice area for lawyers to wit: provision of data protection audit compliance and post-audit remedial services.

Ultimately, as data controllers, Law Firms ought to acquaint themselves with their data protection obligations as employers, service providers and legal advisors, hence the reason for this training.

We are grateful to Justice Ibironke Harrison, Uche Val Obi SAN, Prof Adedeji Adekunle SAN, Kayode Enitan SAN, Jumoke Lambo, Hadiza Doganbana, Babatunde Bamigboye, Olumide Babalola and Moji Ogunlana Okanga for accepting to facilitate the training at no cost to NBA or its members.

Please note that registration for and participation at the training is free and you can register by clicking on
