Now that POPI is a full act of law, as of 1 July 2020, it has become pertinent for organisations to ensure that they understand the repercussions of not being compliant and thus take all the necessary steps and measures towards achieving that status. Fortunately, government has given all organisations 12 months to be totally compliant. Failure to become compliant not only warrants hefty fines and jail time but also reputational damage.

In the 4IR era, data is the new oil and it is the lifeline of every business. Thus; we will also delve into how the influx of new technologies, such as cloud, fundamentally changes how companies collect, store, process, secure and use personal customer information.
