WHAT IS POPI COMPLIANCE AND HOW WE CAN ASSIST?
The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI Act) is a new Act which governs the way in which you handle the personal information (such as names, email address, physical addresses) that you collect from others.
POPI Act compliance, also known as POPIA compliance or Protection of Personal Information Act compliance, involves bringing your organisation into alignment with the POPI Act by implementing the correct workplace policies, processes and procedures.
No matter the size of your organisation, all organisations need to become POPI Act compliant.
We have made it super easy for you to become POPI compliant. Below, you can:
