Avoid reputational damage, loss of business, millions of Rand in fine or jail time
You only have one year left to be complaint!

The time is now….The POPI Act was signed into law on 19 November 2013 and published in the Government Gazette on 26 November 2013. Last September, the National Assembly recommended the appointment of five candidates for the office of the Information Regulator, and in October, the president announced the appointment of all five members. These five members hit the ground running.

What does this mean for your organisation?

According to Michalsons non-compliance will result in:

  • reputational damage
  • loss of business
  • millions paid out in damages to a civil class action
  • fines of up to R10 million or face up to 10 years in jail

But your main motivation for complying with the POPI Act should be to protect people from harm.

Attend ITWeb's POPI Update 2017 and gain an understanding on how you can practically protect your data and ensure compliance.

Despite POPI being an Act since 2013, many organisations are still struggling with being compliant and they only have about a year to get their act together. This event is aimed at helping you to better understand the Act, ensure compliance and avoid the consequences of non-compliance.

You will hear from great legal minds and practical case studies from leading organisations on how they are implementing and adhering to the POPI Act.

This is one event you literally cannot afford not to attend!
