On 1 July, the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) came into full effect and introduced new regulations to protect one’s personal information and constitutional rights to privacy and access to information. However, many businesses are still unsure of the Act’s legal implications and the practical steps that need to be taken to ensure compliance.
To this end, Silicon Cape and Stellenbosch Network partnered to present POPI Act: What Now? – a free webinar for business owners and marketing managers to explore practical steps and resources needed to properly manage their digital channels, marketing, and customer data.
Featuring Aphindile Govuza, a Senior Associate at Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr and specialist in technology, media and telecommunications, who provides an overview of the Act, its legal implications, and what this means in terms of compliance; and Tiaan van Zyl, the Digital Analytics Lead at Traffic Brand, who unpacks what businesses need to be doing with their social media and digital platforms to maintain POPIA compliance.
