Mauritius first in Africa to sign Convention 108

20 Jun

In a move that could lead to a widespread adoption of a global initiative in Africa, Mauritius has ratified the Convention for the protection of individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data, also known as “Convention 108“.

The East African country is the first on the continent and second non-European state – after Uruguay in 2013 – to sign the treaty, the only existing international agreement which safeguards the protection of personal data.
