How will attendees benefit
The Protection of the Personal Information Act (POPI) is South Africa’s new data protection law, and governs every aspect of processing personal information. After the law comes into full effect, which is expected in 2018, businesses and individuals will have one year to comply with the extensive conditions set out by the Act. For this reason, an understanding of POPI and how to be compliant is essential.
By attending this POPI seminar, you will not only be able to identify the duties and responsibilities required to be POPI compliant, but also develop an understanding of best practices for processing personal information, and protecting people’s right to privacy.
