Developments In Africa
Recent developments in the Africa region reflect that global companies should be focusing attention on data protection developments in the region. Tech companies, consumer packaged goods manufacturers, and retailers have focused on Africa as a growth market for their products and services as user adoption in the United States and European Union has flattened. As a result, and in the wake of the GDPR, many African countries have heeded the call for data protection laws. Africa is now the largest region with countries that have some sort of data protection law.
And doing business in Africa means the collection of personal information is becoming regulated.
