APPLY: NITDA Invites Bids For Certification In Data Protection Knowledge
TECH DIGEST – The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has advertised a public bid for any institution seeking to offer and manage professional certifications in data protection knowledge.
Deadline for submission of the application is Friday 2nd July, 2021.
The move is part of the IT regulator’s plan to grow awareness and build data protection capacity across country so that many young Nigerians can “take advantage of the emerging data economy.”
NITDA issued the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) in 2019 to officially give birth to Nigeria’s data protection industry. The NDPR is designed “to ensure the protection of data privacy of Nigerians, safe exchange of personal data, improve ease of doing business and to create economic and growth opportunities for Nigerians.”
