Organisations have been given a very clear mandate by the South African government – comply with the incoming Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) by July 2021 or face the consequences.
In that, this act is similar to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR) that it is one of few acts that applies penalties to non-compliance. However, this similarity doesn’t mean that organisations compliant with the GDPR are now compliant with POPIA. There are fundamental and critical differences between the two acts that require deeper engagement with the regulations to ensure that those organisations with GDPR compliance are prepared for the additional elements that POPIA will bring.
In this white paper, experts from Atvance Intellect provide you with the perfect guide to corporate compliance. You will discover what your business needs to know to ensure compliance, to reduce risk and to engage in best practice when it comes to these two market leaders in personal information protection.
