Cybercrime policies/strategies

The Government of Angola has not yet adopted a cybercrime strategy. There is no specific legislation in place on cybersecurity and on cybercrime – even if a new Penal Code was already approved in the National Assembly (the Parliament), which includes a number of articles incriminating cybercrime. Regarding the protection of critical infrastructures, the Law no. 7/2017 is in place, on the protection of networks and computer systems.

Specialised institutions

The Electronic Communication Regulatory Body is INACOM, or the ‘Instituto Angolano das Comunicações’.

The Data Protection Law establishes the Agência Angolana de Proteção de Dados (AAPD) as Angola’s data protection authority. Although Presidential Decree 214/2016 (currently in force) approved the AAPD’s Organic Statute in October 2016, the AAPD started functioning as of October 2019.
