A live, free webinar is being held at 11:00am SA time on Tuesday, 29 June 2021, in a joint presentation by cyber security specialist F-Secure and legal firm Webber Wentzel.

The webinar will focus on cyber security tips for both the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) legislation that will be coming into effect in South Africa on 1 July 2021, and the Cyber Crimes Bill that has just been signed into existence by the South African president.

With headquarters in Helsinki, Finland, and being the biggest cyber security company in Europe, F-Secure has a great deal of experience in dealing with the similar General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation that came into effect in Europe just over three years ago.

Webber Wentzel is a world-renowned legal firm based in South Africa that specialises in the various aspects of the POPI Act legislation and is very knowledgeable on the new Cyber Crimes Bill.

The following topics will be discussed in the webinar:

  • The requirements of Information Officers needing to register for POPIA by 30 June 2021.
  • Which organisations in SA are required to register for POPIA.
  • POPIA unpacked - a brief summary of POPIA and its comparison to Europe’s very similar GDPR.
  • The roles of CEOs, COOs, CTOs, IT managers, etc, under POPIA and the Cyber Crimes Bill.
  • The security aspects of POPIA compliance.
  • Could you be doing something illegal under the new legislation without realising it?
  • Get answers to your questions at the end of the webinar by submitting them to the experts during the webinar.
