The POPI Act - Unit 1 - Compliance Checklist

Aug2020 To give attendees a workable POPI Act compliance checklist that ensures full compliance.


By the end of this event the attendee should:  

  • Understand the basics of the POPI Act;
  • Have a high-level overview of what will need to be done over the next 11 months; 
  • Know the steps required to facilitate POPI Act compliance;
  • Understand how to start using the POPI Act Compliance Checklist, including;
    • Who the key role players are within and outside your organization; and
    • The need for a Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) Manual.
  • Be aware of critical issues that need to be addressed urgently regarding;
    • Data servers;

The much-anticipated Protection of Personal Information Act of 2013 (POPI Act) commenced on 1 July 2020 and requires all businesses (including employers) to comply by 30 June 2021.

The appointment of a dedicated POPI Act compliance officer or team, dependent on the function and size of the organisation, upskilling of this function and provision of access to tools that deconstruct the specifics of the Act should be prioritised to ensure compliance is achieved, and penalties avoided.

Receive a POPI Act Compliance Checklist that will function as an action plan for the next 11 months to get you fully compliant.
