Commentary@ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

A popular philanthropist and business icon was once quoted as saying that when entrepreneurs from Nigeria die, they will be ushered into heaven by God because they cannot suffer twice.
The statement above, although capable of drawing some mirth, is a reflection of the challenging business climate that Nigeria represents. Doing business in Nigeria is tough.

There is no hiding from this fact. Although the Nigerian economy is blessed with a number of indices which make it a prime investment destination, the reality on ground is that of a peculiar environment where only the most resourceful, tenacious and firm believers in Nigeria and the Nigerian project can survive and thrive.

If you are in any illusions as to how tough it is to cut it and make a success of entrepreneurship in Nigeria, the latest World Bank report on the global Ease of Doing Business can provide some valid insights.

Survey: 70% Nigerian businesses unaware of privacy laws - ITREALMS


According to a recent survey, only 30% of Nigerian businesses are aware of privacy laws governing their marketing activities, despite Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) being in effect since 2019. The survey, conducted by WorldWideWorx and commissioned by global technology company Zoho, also revealed that even though businesses are concerned about the privacy of customer's data in the hands of third-party vendors, they are reliant on them for revenue generation and gathering customer insights. This makes it harder for them to move away.

 


According to WorldWideWorx CEO Arthur Goldstuck, the lack of awareness about the law is largely because these regulations are not part of business-critical activities like taxation and licensing. However, 78% of the businesses indicated that they have well-documented policies for customer data protection. "This is likely following fear of NDPR violation, which has made headlines in Nigeria," said Goldstuck. Even so, only 60% are strictly applying them.
