POPIA is the Protection of Personal Information Act, 4 of 2013 (“POPIA”) which commenced on 1 July 2020.

The core provisions of POPIA pertain to the processing of personal information, the processing of special personal information, the Information Officer, direct marketing by means of unsolicited communications, flow of information outside of South Africa and enforcement of POPIA.

The Act requires all businesses (including employers, schools, trusts, municipalities, etc) that process personal information, to ensure that the necessary measures are in place to implement, prove and monitor compliance by 30 June 2021.

This is a very daunting task which necessitates in-depth knowledge of this very complicated Act. This is why we have invited our POPI Act expert consultant, Lettie Janse van Vuuren CA(SA), to present this important series that will take you to full compliance. 

The Series includes 12 units presented from August 2020 until June 2021.

Register for the series and let us help you become compliant every step of the way!


The following pricing apply:
Ad hoc: R3600 for the full series


The Series include a free POPIA Guide to ISRS 4400 Engagements.

This Guide was commissioned by SAIBA to provide guidance to members in practice on performing services to clients in relation to clients’ readiness for POPIA. It is very comprehensive and provides clear guidelines on how to perform an agreed-upon-procedure agreement to determine if your clients have the various policies and procedures in place before early next year.

The Guide can be used by business owners or management to ensure their companies are POPIA compliant and guide them through the necessary steps and procedures that is required to be compliant.
