What is POPI compliance and how we can assist you
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:

Policies and Agreements
A Data Protection Policy is a policy agreed to by your clients, suppliers, agents, independent contractors and other external parties if you collect any personal information from them. It is used to obtain their consent to process (use) their personal information.
It is probably the most important of all POPI policies, and regulates the manner in which the personal information you collect from them may be accessed, processed and in some instances shared.
If your business requires any outside party to use or store (process) personal information of your clients on your behalf, this requires a written agreement, known as an Operator Agreement or a Data Processing Policy, to be entered into between your business and the outside party that processes the personal information on your behalf.
Our Data Breach Policy helps you and your employees deal with real or suspected breaches of the data you hold, and makes sure the correct procedures are followed to report and contain any breaches.
Our POPI Act Workplace Policy is a policy which binds your staff members in terms of the POPI Act as to how they are required to treat personal information of your customers that they come into contact with.
Our POPI Act Impact Assessment / Legal Compliance Report looks at the documents, processes and relationships of your business and provides a report detailing your business’s compliance with the POPI Act coupled with any changes which are needed to be made to ensure compliance.
All organisations that collect Personal Information need to register one of their personnel as an Information Officer. We’ll assist your organisation in registering your Information Officer.
