Data Protection Act

The DATA PROTECTION ACT. No. 24 of 2019 (DPA) is the Republic of Kenya data privacy law that has been in force since 25th November 2019.

We are committed to the DPA and supporting our customers in their compliance.
What is DPA?

The Data Protection Act (DPA) gives effect to Articles 31(c) and (d) of the Constitution of Kenya which guarantee the right of every person not to have what is considered private information particularly personally Identifiable information (PII) unnecessarily required or revealed” and the right not to have “the privacy of their communications infringed”.

The DPA establishes the office of a Data Protection Commissioner, which will oversee the implementation and enforcement of the new law. The statute adopts global data protection principles (such as those contained in EU’s GDPR)
