POPI 101 for beginners

Hey, as you all know by now that from 1 July this year 2021, South African companies had to be fully compliant with the requirements of the Data or Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA)!

But don’t stress… we are here to help you put it into layman’s terms & not to confuse you with lots of legal jargon!

Whether you’re a small car dealer, boutique, coffee shop, yoga studio, or even a creche, every business regardless of size or industry sector will be held liable if they do not adhere to these government regulations that focus on how personal, staff & customer information can be processed, held and stored. If your not a technology whizz but have a website, with policies, hold customer data, staff but no idea how to react if something goes wrong or you’re in breach. You need to talk to us!

This Act can work in your favour & help you protect your business from harm and internal theft so it’s not all bad!

Being non-compliant or ignoring this Act is simply not an option. It can result in significant financial fines, reputational damage for a brand, paying out damages claims to those customers impacted, and even jail time for the small business owner. Not cool at all. In a few very simple steps you too will understand what is needed to cover your bases.

Ultimately, POPIA comes down to taking ownership of your databases and personal information within a company, protecting your customer and internal databases from security breaches, understanding where all your data is from, where it is stored as well as having customer permission to use their information for marketing purposes. If this is not in place, then it does not matter if the company complies with all other aspects of POPIA, it will remain non-compliant.

We are here to help to smaller companies put policies and procedures into pay!

The communications act allows you keep communication with clients as long as its relevant and from a reliable source.
