I got a call from a stranger selling a product with the marketing cliche “become wealthy and healthy”.

I was curious on how the Caller got my number. As she giggled, “You are our corporate customer on Bank B remember, I’m so and so”.

I politely declined the offer, but I’m just wondering how far our data is used by unscrupulous employees. Do these corporate companies (banks, hospitals, insurance firms, telecoms …) understand what data protection is and the liabilities they face if there is a breach? Suppose I used my call log to launch a formal complain or even sue the bank!

What does the current law in Kenya say?

How does this affect you? Identity theft is real and here with us. Anybody that can get access to full information on your identity can easily wipe your bank account.
