About DPAS 2023 Data Protection Africa Summit

In the midst of the transformative 4th Industrial Revolution, the imperative of safeguarding personal data has reached unprecedented significance. Across the globe, a clarion call has resonated among nations, urging data custodians, users, and processors to exercise prudence in the stewardship, storage, and utilization of this invaluable information. This momentum has been distinctly echoed within the African landscape, as nations and industries join hands to fortify data protection and privacy frameworks.

Continuing our commitment to propel the growth and maturation of data protection and privacy across Africa, we proudly present the 2023 Data Protection Africa Summit (DPAS). This seminal event, recognized as one of the continent's foremost gatherings dedicated to data protection and privacy, is brought to fruition through a collaboration between the Africa Digital Rights Hub and the esteemed National Commission for the Protection of Personal Data (CNDP) of Morocco. United by the overarching theme - "THE DIGITAL AFRICAN: Consumer or Citizen?" - DPAS 2023 endeavours to explore this pivotal question.

The summit serves as an unparalleled convergence point for data controllers, processors, technological enterprises, policy architects, regulatory bodies, trailblazing innovators, business communities, and individual stakeholders. This dynamic assembly serves as a crucible for deliberation and solution-forging in the realm of emerging data protection and privacy issues across the African landscape.

Steering towards the creation of an ecosystem conducive to the ethical collection and utilization of personal data as a paramount strategic asset for socio-economic advancement, the summit's core objective is multifaceted. DPAS 2023 is dedicated to the enrichment of capacities, the facilitation of synergistic collaborations, the spotlighting of domain expertise, and the comprehensive exploration of the nuanced challenges that define the data protection and privacy narrative within Africa.

Join us in Rabat, Morocco, as DPAS 2023 ushers in a new era of insights, dialogues, and actionable pathways to shape the future of data protection and privacy on the African continent and beyond.
