Responsible Data Management Course

In the rapidly evolving digital age, data stewardship requires more than compliance; it necessitates a nuanced understanding and principled approach to safeguarding individuals’ privacy and rights. Supported by the Nigeria Data Protection Act, Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Communication, Innovation, and Digital Economy, alongside other ministries, is advancing the digitization of public services and integrating technology into daily interactions. This course bridges the theoretical aspects of Nigeria’s Data Protection Act with practical knowledge on data rights and responsibilities, helping civil servants navigate data management complexities and mitigate vulnerabilities in public service. By exploring responsible data handling principles and the data management lifecycle, the course provides civil servants with both regulatory knowledge and ethical frameworks, enabling informed decisions that uphold the law and enhance public trust and confidence in institutions.
