POPIA Webinar

The President has announced the commencement of the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act 4 of 2013 on 1 July 2020. This means all affected organisations must comply with the Act within 12 months or face hefty fines.

What is the POPIA Act?

The POPIA Act is concerned with the protection of personal information processed, managed and stored by public and private entities. It includes conditions to which all South African businesses must adhere to ensure an individual’s right to privacy and protection against identity fraud, as well as compliance with the law.

Is your business ready?

In order to comply with the POPIA Act, you need to establish what your organisation needs to do in terms of data protection. The POPIA Act places different responsibilities on each of the individuals involved in processing and handling personal information.
