With its 1.3billion population, 97% of which are below 65 years, Africa has a potentially productive population, especially where aided by information communication technology. Thus, initiatives like the AU-EU conceived Policy and Regulation Initiative for Digital Africa (PRIDA) which aims to foster universally accessible and affordable broadband across Africa should naturally have an ally in the Convention that seeks to ensure that the security, privacy and personal data protection rights of all persons living or interacting with Africa are preserved and promoted. With mobile broadband coverage currently at over 70% of the Africa continent and still rising, the emergence of a uniform framework for personal data protection and cybersecurity in Africa, underscored by the Convention, becomes imperative. 

The Conference is designed to set a workable agenda for the building of world-class cybersecurity and personal data protection infrastructure/systems/institutions across Africa with the view to engendering the sustained rise of the Africa knowledge economy.

Bidemi is an NDPR and EU GDPR certified privacy rights law practitioner. A lawyer of about 15 years post-qualification experience in Nigeria and the African markets, Bidemi brings to bear core executive and managerial skills in helping clients (corporate, individual, and governments) navigate the complexities of data protection and global privacy rights in general. He has overseen the implementation of both the NDPR and GDPR at various corporate, individual, and governmental levels, with effectiveness, efficiency, and commerce at the center of his interventions. Bidemi is Lead Partner of the Commercial and Criminal Law Practice at AO2LAW and CEO at Taxaide and Taxtech; the chief conveners of the Africa Data Protection Conclave.
