IT Readiness and POPI
What is PoPI?
The purpose of the Protection of Personal Information (PoPI) Act is to ensure that all South African institutions behave responsibly when collecting, processing, storing and sharing the personal information of another entity. PoPI, signed into South African law in November 2013, has significant implications for businesses in this country, as they may incur potentially severe penalties if they fail to process and store personal information securely.
If your company processes or handles personal information, PM&A can assist you in complying with this legislation by improving your security systems. We can help you to address compliance issues by improving your security, encrypting data and implementing other measures to protect the personal information your company handles.
