Since entering into force in May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to all entities in the European Economic Area (EEA) and – due to the extended territorial scope – to a large extent also to entities outside of the EEA. The GDPR has led to a significant rise in data protection compliance duties.
In Kenya, The Data Protection Act, 2019, was signed into law back in 2019. The Act, whose comprehensive legislation borrows heavily from the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), seeks to create an institutional framework and legal guidelines for processing personal data in Kenya and belonging to Kenyans. Kenya’s first data commissioner was sworn in October 2019 to ensure protection, proper handling and processing of personal data by different entities.
As the GDPR came into force, MSF acknowledged that we were not sufficiently compliant globally and locally. In response, an International Data Protection Steering Committee was created by higher MSF executive level in 2017 and a steering committee created. The creation of data protection board has been approved in 2021.
Under the general Director and in collaboration with the Head of finance, the project manager will develop the Data Protection and implementation strategy, assuring compliance with GDPR, and other applicable data protection laws. She/he will implement MSF Baseline and will be developing a system to prevent or deal with violations of legal guidelines and internal policies. She/he will utilize the Data protection Software “OneTrust” to support the development of the data protection system.
