Capacity building and raising awareness on data privacy and digital rights were cited among the most important recommendations delivered by participants of the digital rights focus group organized by the MENA Hub and 7amleh in January 2021. Building on these findings, SimSim and the MENA Hub will lead actions and initiatives in collaboration with the National Commission on Data Privacy (CNDP), 10 local CSOs, and 10 MPs to demand the amendment of law 09.08 covering data privacy in Morocco. To do so, SimSim will hold a 1-day in-person training in Rabat facilitated by the MENA Hub IT Officer on digital security best practices and the status of data privacy in Morocco for the benefit of 10 Parliament Members of the National Youth List and 10 local CSOs. Following the training, the participants will take part in 2 consultation meetings with a field expert to help craft a technical proposal that can be used to advocate for comprehensive legislation regarding data privacy in Morocco, including the addition of clauses in the event of a violation of a user’s privacy.
