Data Protection Case Study: Nigeria

2016 — By Norman Shamas

In March 2016, the Electronic Cash Transfer Learning Action Network (ELAN) brought together Mercy Corps’ and Catholic Relief Services’ Nigeria teams to discuss data protection in their electronic voucher programs and overall operations.

Because data protection relies so heaviliy on context (e.g., internal policies on data sharing, national laws and the parties interested in the data),  the workshop focused on processes to create a culture of data protection and privacy.  The two main processes discussed were data flow mapping and risk assessments.
