Africa Re’s operational environment is characterized by evolving and diverse legislation and regulation requirements. The main objectives pursued through these regulations are:

• Giving citizens more control over their personal data with a view to catering for growing privacy protection aspirations.

• Introduce new rights for citizens (right to portability of personal data, right to be forgotten) in today’s data-driven world.

• Increase awareness of data regulation through a system of penalties (fines).

Furthermore, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of EU residents and came into effect from May 25, 2018. The GDPR applies to any organization, regardless of their geographic location; who are either “Controller” (i.e. public authority, agency or other body who determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data) or “Processor” (i.e. public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller), of the data of EU residents.
