The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI Act) protects citizens’ personal information. POPI compliance is critical for any South African business.
Private businesses and government bodies must be POPI compliant in terms of how they collect, use, store, or share a person’s personal information. The POPI Act applies to any person or organisation that keeps any type of record relating to the personal information of any person. POPI Compliance is key in ensuring your business’ overall legal health.
