Protection of Personal Information in Practice (2020)

The Protection of Personal Information Act is in full effect as of 1 July 2020. This gives businesses and organisations just 12 months to get on top of compliance with the act. Awareness has been achieved but gaps have been identified in practical knowledge concerning the act and its interaction with other information related laws. The POPI in practice workshop looks to fill those gaps with a practical bottom-up; look at POPI regulation, how work done on the ground relates to the POPI Act and how processes can be redesigned to comply with the regulation.
