The Short Programme in POPI ACT Implementation is designed to prepare its participants to implement the POPI ACT Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) in compliance with the requirements and guidance of the 2013 POPI ACT. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the best practices of privacy information management and learn how to manage and process data while complying with various data privacy regimes.

After the POPIA commencement date or effective date there is a 12-month grace period – so the POPIA deadline is at the end of the grace period. POPIA (South Africa’s data protection law) will only be in force about eight years after it was enacted in 2013.

What is the POPI Act
Questions to answer and evaluate the POPI Act As an employer, ask yourself: • Is there a formal policy for the processing of personal information? •
Does your policy for processing of information identify why the information may be processed, i.e. consent, legislation, contract? • • How does your business assess whether the type of personal information is adequate for, and relevant to, the purpose for which it is collected? • • Does your business obtain the consent of individuals before processing their personal information?
