There is the need for African countries to build the data protections standard across their borders to enhance digital economic growth, Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami has said.

Speaking at the inaugural virtual Africa Data Protection Conclave, the minister the National Digital Economy Policy Strategy in Nigeria rests on developmental regulation, digital skills, solid infrastructure, service infrastructure, digital services, soft infrastructure, digital society, emerging technologies, indigenous content creation and promotion.

In his keynote address, Pantami explained that while African nations continue to build the digital economy, thought must be taken to build the confidence of citizens to ensure there are no data breaches in any way.

“We need to ensure that nations build their data infrastructure, mining and security to the highest level because this will be the industry of the future to generate economic growth and build wealth,” he said.
