Togo to set up a personal data protection authority

(Togo First) - To better secure its digital ecosystem and protect users against cybercrime, notably, Togo plans to set up a Personal Data Protection Authority (IPDCP).

A draft decree in relation to the project, which falls under the law on the protection of personal data (passed about a year ago), was discussed last Wednesday during the council of ministers held that day. 

The IPDCP will carry out investigations and interventions, as well as impose sanctions on offenders, within the framework of the government policy aimed at protecting personal data. 

In addition, said the government, the new body will ensure "that any processing of personal data, respects the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals as well as the interests of the State, local authorities, businesses and other legal entities”.
