POPIA Webinar Series

​​​The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) regulates all organisations who process personal information - information about employees, customers, suppliers and those who outsource key processing activities, share data offshore, or engage in direct marketing. Organisations have until 30 June 2021 to comply with the requirements set out in POPIA. Non-compliance can result in significant penalties - up to 10  years' imprisonment and/or ZAR 10 million in administrative fines and civil claims and reputational damage.

We have produced a POPIA infographic which sets out an overview of the instances in which POPIA will apply to processing activities and the obligations which come with POPIA.

Watch our recently hosted POPIA webinar series to help your organisation with POPIA readiness. The three parts of the series are detailed below and each of the sessions is an hour long.
