In the continued push for the championing of Data Protection and Data Rights in Kenya and beyond, the Open Institute has officially launched “A Study on National and Sub-National Data Practices in Kenya – Gaps and Opportunities” based on a study undertaken in five counties – Makueni, Taita Taveta, Kilifi, Vihiga and Bomet – on data protection and access to information laws and policy at the national and sub-national levels in Kenya. The study is a first in both documenting and generating good practices that may inform the rolling out of Kenya’s Data Protection Act (2019). This extends not just to execution of privacy and data protection policies, but also awareness raising on the law and redress for problems areas.
