PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION ACT

to 13 Mar 2020
Venue: Emperors Palace Convention Centre in Johannesburg & 19-20 March at Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town
Herewith please find attached the workshop content on the PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION ACT coming up on the 12-13 March 2020 at the Emperors Palace Convention Centre in Johannesburg & 19-20 March 2020 at the Southern Sun Waterfront Cape town. It is expected that the Protection of Personal Information Act will become effective during the course of 2019. This expectation is based on the fact that the POPIA Regulations were Gazetted in December 2018.
In terms of the POPIA, the CEO or equivalent officer of a private organisation is the Information Officer of the organisation. The duties and responsibilities of the Information Officer may be delegated to a Deputy Information Officer. The Regulations introduces specific responsibilities that an Information Officer must ensure or occur within the organisation and these are as follows:
a compliance framework is developed, implemented, monitored and maintained;
a personal information impact assessment is done to ensure that adequate measures and standards exist in order to comply with the conditions for the lawful processing of personal information;
a manual is developed, monitored, maintained and made available as prescribed in the Promotion of Access to Information Act
internal measures are developed together with adequate systems to process requests for information and access thereto; and
internal awareness sessions are conducted regarding the provisions of the POPIA.
Our two day workshop has been updated to include discussion, guidance and examples on the above regulatory requirements.
To register kindly complete and send back the attached registration form.
