Large amounts of personal data generated
in the country are stored across
servers, networks and several filing
systems in different locations
(electronically & manually), locally and
abroad. The information systems used in
the collection and storage of such
personal data can pose considerable
challenges to one’s right to privacy. As
this trend continues to grow rapidly
with increasingly sophisticated
technology with extensive abilities to
hold large amounts of data, it is
necessary to address privacy concerns
with data protection laws.
