Dear Colleagues,

The Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) would like to invite you to an
event under the theme *"The role of tech companies in the protection of
Human Rights”* to be held virtually on Friday 30th, 2021, 10am-1pm.

Technology companies and especially tech startups have the potential to
play significant positive contributions to the promotion and protection of
human rights. In Kenya, the issue of data protection and data privacy is a
matter of concern for many despite having the existence of the Data
Protection Act.

How do we ensure that the organisations trusted with the personal data use
the best data protection practices? We will also learn more on what the
Data Commissioner office has been doing to operationalize the Data
Protection law in Kenya.

You are welcome to join us and your participation will also be highly
