Dear all, 

I think there are some misunderstandings of the issue 
By the way under which laws there will be fines imposed on AFRINIC after the 25th ???? does AFRINIC have subsidiary company in EU area ?? 
I think things are more simplier for AFRINIC 
AFRINIC has just to declare that as company is fully respecting data privacy and should appoint a senior responsible for assuring that all mecanisms implemebted treating personal 
data comply with data privacy issues for example AFRINIC should ISO27001 certified and had a Security Officer (which is mandatory to be ISO27001 certified).

My expectation is that the org confirms that is has performed a thorough evaluation and believe any risks have been mitigated. 


If fines are to be imposed on AFRINIC (past May 25th) simply because there was less care taken upfront in dealing with this issue, then it will be a total mess. 

AFRINIC members need to look closely at this since they might be the ones paying!

I suggest sending an email to contact at afrinic.net if you have 
questions about the above as I would not know how that works for you 
given that we do not reside in the same country.
