In addition to helping you with the required documents, we now also offer online legal training. Read more below.
Section 55 of the Protection of Personal Information Act, 2013 ("POPIA") sets out various obligations that an Information Officer must discharge. These requirements must also be read in conjunction with the Regulations issued under POPIA.
Regulation 4(e) obliges an Information Officer to conduct internal awareness sessions with staff in relation to the Act, the regulations, codes of conduct or information obtained from the Regulator.
Many Information Officers do not themselves have the knowledge to conduct training for staff. In addition, with staff availability changing (as well as staff composition) it is difficult for Information Officers to be compliant. Our online training product has the answer.
In 2021 the team at contractzone partnered with Elantis to produce an online training course that meets the requirements of Information Officers and assists in getting POPIA compliance.
Our online courses are unique. Staff are assigned to the course and must go through an interactive process to course. Once complete each staff member will receive a certificate which serves as proof that the Information Officer has provided the required training.
Our pricing on the online training products is dependent upon the number of courses that are required. Not only is it affordable but the online courses provide staff with the ability to go through the process at times when it is convenient for them to do so.
