What is POPIA?
The Protection of Personal Information Act, 2012 is legislation that regulates how personal information is handled. In part, it aims to reduce the endless spam that fills up your inbox on a daily basis & the unsolicited telephone calls that are so incredibly annoying.
POPIA is now in full force and effect. Compliance with this Legislation is mandatory and there are substantial risks associated with non-compliance. These risks are not only penalties under POPIA, but they extend to third party claims and even labour related issues.
