The appointment of Information Regulator, Advocate Pansy Tlakula, is the last piece of the puzzle. POPI is a reality. Are you compliant?

After years of talk and speculation, the Protection of Personal Information or POPI Act is finally a reality. The appointment of the Information Regulator, Adv. Pansy Tlakula, is the last step to compliance. Very soon, the Information Regulator will be willing and able to knock on your door.

Are you ready? Do you know what compliance entails?

With fines of up to R10-Million, as well as up to 10 years imprisonment, becoming a POPI-scapegoat will impact you personally and professionally. Your business could be at risk if your staff are not aware of what the POPI Act requires from them.

This impactful half-day seminar sets out the requirements of the act and best practice for your company. Our legal experts, sourced from the leading law firms in South Africa can help you to plot out the most effective strategy for compliance.
