The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has published the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) Audit filing compliant organizations’ list.
This was contained in a statement disclosed to NewsDirect by NITDA’s Head Corporate Affairs and External Affairs, Mrs Hadiza Umar on Thursday.
The list is an authoritative repository of organizations that have prioritized compliance with the NDPR, and has become a reference point for global law firms, multinationals, investors, and compliance enthusiasts. The list indicates those organisations that have undergone the NDPR Audit process to ascertain their level of compliance, and identify areas for improvement.
