#CitiTrends S05 Ep17: Understanding Personal data and Data Protection in Ghana

The regulation of data is necessary in order to balance the protection of the individual’s privacy rights with the rights of organisations and governments to collect and use data for business and administrative purposes. That is what data protection is all about. A special audit carried out by the Auditor-General in Ghana on the Electoral Commission (EC) revealed what many termed as the 'sale' of voters’ data to an Accra-based software development company, Bysystem Ltd. According to the 2018 audit, Bysystem Ltd ‘bought’ the data from the EC and further sold them to financial service providers for a fee. The audit report also found fault with a lack of contractual agreement to cover the deal between the EC and Bysystem Ltd in breach of procurement laws. What exactly is going on and are our data protection laws up to date with the times? My Guests : Adu Ampofo is the CEO of Velia and she is a compliance and data protection consultant Maximus Ametogoh, CEO of PopOut Paul Damalie, CEO of Appruve Rita Adjei, Head of Brands and Marketing at Nsano
