The need for the identification of all persons in all jurisdictions in the world has become
universal. However, the loss of identification documents whether through criminality or
negligence has major security implications not only for the individual but also to
entities that have perpetuities. Studies have shown that these challenges can be solved
by embracing modern technology which many countries including Kenya are yet to
achieve. This study examined the factors that limit the integration of Information
Technology Communications (ICT) in the protection of personal and business
documents and proposes measures that should be taken towards its integration. The
study targeted a population of 150 individuals from the Kenya Police (KP), Kenya Data
Network (KDN) and Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) from which a sample of 110
respondents was selected. The survey design applied both qualitative and quantitative
research methods to collect and analyze primary and secondary data. Self-administered
questionnaires were distributed to the respondents using simple random sampling.
Semi-structured interviews were also used to collect primary data. Secondary data was
collected through reviewing information from previous related studies. The Statistical
Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used for quantitative data while meaning
condensation and categorization were used for qualitative data analysis. The study
revealed that lack of an integrated ICT system is a challenge in tracking missing
identities or even verifying the validity of provided information thus compromising the
productivity and security of businesses and institutions. Results from this research study
highlight the role of integrated ICT systems in enhancing the tracing of missing identity
documents and in making corrections on inaccurate personal data.
