POPIA is here to stay


Overview     

 Even though POPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act of 2013), commenced a year ago on 1 July 2020, most of us simply ignored it in the hopes that it will go away, but POPIA is definitely here to stay!   

With the grace period to prove compliance coming to an end on 30 June 2021, one thing is certain: you cannot plead ignorance. Immediate action is crucial! 

The only comfort is that all businesses (including employers) that process personal information, are required to ensure that the necessary measures are in place to implement, prove and monitor compliance – so all of us are in the same boat! 

In this webinar, we will focus on how you can ensure that you are POPIA compliant and which steps you need to take to prove it.
