POPI Act Series


Overview:

The much-anticipated POPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act of 2013), commenced on 1 July 2020, and requires all businesses (including employers) that process personal information, to ensure that the necessary measures are in place to implement, prove and monitor compliance by 30 June 2021.

This is a very daunting task which necessitates in-depth knowledge of this very complicated Act as well as detailed customisation for your business. Which is why we have a POPIA expert available for consultation - should you wish to outsource some functions like so many other South African businesses.

In this webinar series, we aim to equip you with the knowledge of what you need to do to become POPIA compliant within the next 10 months. We provide a POPIA Compliance Checklist to you free of charge and will address the most important aspects to consider during implementation.

This series is presented by our technical expert Lettie Janse van Vuuren CA(SA) and is structured into bite-sized pieces that are topic related and designed to give an overview and insight into the Act and its day-to-day practical application.
