Why?

In simple terms, the purpose of the POPI Act is to ensure that all South African institutions conduct themselves in a responsible manner when collecting, processing, storing and sharing another entity's personal information by holding them accountable should they abuse or compromise your personal information in any way ...
It is therefore pertinent to know and understand why you as an organisation need to be compliant and what the implications are, should you not be.
Attending our POPI Programme will provide you with the necessary toolkit, guidance and understanding in order to equip to comply with POPI regulation.

IS YOUR CUSTOMER DATA SECURE?

We have the Experts and the Regulator herself to provide the understanding of POPI. So, it would be beneficial for you to attend.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Incorporating POPI in your daily operations within your business is of extreme importance and huge effort is required. Change Management of the POPI implementation is of paramount importance. Learn about the simple things that may possibly constitute non-compliance. On the flip side POPI can be a Catalyst for you and can help you optimise your business processes.
