About the workshop

This course will assist companies in understanding the meaning of the POPI Act and the impact that this piece of legislation has on their organisations.
Failure to comply with the requirements of the POPI Act could have dire consequences.
Although companies cannot and shouldn’t shy away from the legal aspects of the Act, POPIA should be seen as an opportunity to identify, clean-up and manage information better, and in doing so, improve business processes.
Don’t fall into the trap of implementing POPIA just to meet your compliance requirements.

The workshop will cover

  • Aspects of preparing for POPI through practical means of revamping their organisations’ compliance resources
  • Provide you with full insight of how POPI will affect the companies’ contracts
  • As part of the workshop, we will go through the process of how to review documents/contracts to include the aspects laid down in POPI
  • How to integrate POPI and the Consumer Protection Act by drafting contracts in plain language
  • Discuss how to comply with POPI in protecting your employees’ and customer’s information and data and ensuring that they are aware of how their information is to be used.
