Come the 1st of July 2021, all public and private bodies need to be POPIA compliant.
Compliance with POPIA has become a necessity to all businesses in South Africa as non-compliance can result in not only reputational risk, but also significant penalties, including imprisonment and massive fines.
This webinar will focus on:
◉ How exactly compliance works
◉ Breaking down the compliance process
◉ Conceptualise the way forward to compliance
Join Ahmore Burger-Smidt from Werksmans, Director and Head of the Data Protection and Privacy Practice and member of the Competition Practice as she discusses what is needed to ensure compliance for your organisation and that it’s implemented in the correct manner.
Its importance is quite clear with POPIA being a statute with a constitutional endorsement and carries with it the weight of the Bill of Rights.
