Praia, Jan 7 (Inforpress) – The president of the National Data Protection Commission (CNPD), Faustino Varela, defended the need for further studies and security measures to protect data from the massification of new information technologies.

Faustino Varela, who was speaking to journalists this Monday in Praia, on the sidelines of a courtesy visit by the Angolan Data Protection Agency (AAPD) delegation to National Assembly President Jorge Santos, said some instruments dealing with fundamental rights should be approved in Parliament.

“Given the emergence of new information and communication technologies, there is also a need for studies and projects in order to have security measures, whether logical or physical,” he admitted, stressing that the CNPD must be aware of the new challenges and propose solutions.

On the visit of the Angolan delegation, Faustino Varela assured that the CNPD is in a position to share its initial experience regarding the approval of the “essential” instruments for the start of the operation of a data protection authority.
