Zambia ratifies AU Convention on Cyber Security and Personal Data Protection
Zambia’s cabinet has ratified the African Union (AU) Convention on Cyber Security and Personal Data Protection – also known as the Malabo convention, which requires 15 ratifications to come into force. The convention harmonises cyber-laws in Africa and creates avenues for cross-border cooperation. Zambia is the sixth state to ratify the convention, which was adopted in 2014. The last country to deposit an instrument of ratification with the AU, was Rwanda in June 2019.
