Côte d’Ivoire: ARTCI sets up permanent exchange framework for personal data protection

(Ecofin Agency) - In Côte d'Ivoire, telecom regulator ARTCI has established a permanent exchange framework for the protection of personal data in the country. The framework initiative was officially launched at the ARTCI’s headquarters, last Tuesday, during a ceremony attended by Ms. Namahoua Touré, Director General of ARTCI, and Mr. Philippe Kouamé, Director of Personal Data Protection at the ARTCI.

The framework aims to be an inclusive melting pot where innovative ideas are discussed, concrete ideas suggested and relevant proposals made for a better application of Law No. 2013-450 of June 19, 2013, on the protection of Personal Data (DCP Law).

The initiative is in line with ARTCI’s mission as the authority in charge of personal data protection as stated in Ivorian laws. According to enforceable laws, the personal data protection authority must ensure that the exploitation of information and communication technologies does not threaten residents’ freedom and privacy. 

During the ceremony, Ms. Touré urged stakeholders to actively take part in the meetings that will be organized in the coming weeks to establish a regulatory framework that will ensure the development of data protection activities for a flourishing digital economy in Côte d'Ivoire.
