Guide to Navigating POPI
The introduction of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) puts the onus on companies and individuals to respect and protect the personal information they process in the course of routine business, including personal information of customers, prospective customers, employees, and suppliers. It is not limited to people but also applies to information about organisations, including communities and corporate entities. POPI has already been passed into law, but the act provides for a one-year grace period for businesses to become compliant. At the publishing date of this guide, the one-year grace period had not yet commenced due to its pending announcement.
