The Council of Europe has announced that Morocco and Tunisia are the latest member states to join separate international treaties that provide individuals the right to have their personal data protected. Morocco is the 55th nation to join "Convention 108," more formally known as the Convention for the protection of individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data. Tunisia is the 30th member state for "Convention 108+," which allows protection related to the basic processing of personal data. While the council will amend both treaties to allow alignment with Moroccan and Tunisian data protection laws, it also announced that Convention 108 is proposing a separate amendment to modernize the treaty, which was written in 1980, and address new challenges in protecting data.
