About

  • Being accountable is one of the key principles of POPIA. See for example paragraph 4(1)(e) of the Regulations in terms of the POPIA that stipulate –  An information officer must, ensure that internal awareness sessions are conducted regarding the provisions of the Act, regulations made in terms of the Act, codes of conduct, or information obtained from the Regulator.
  • If you can show that your employees have received training in the regulation, and are aware of data privacy and protection, then it counts towards your compliance. Once you have a training programme in place, you need a kind of “log book” to prove the training status of your staff members. When new staff members join the company they need to be able to join the training programme too.

Online training:

We developed an online training programme on Privacy and information Security Awareness, the Protection of Personal Information Act. The programme is designed to train staff in large numbers and to ensure that management is provided with progress reports. This training can be customised and branded just for you. There are also programmes available on the Consumer Protection Act and Social Media in the healthcare workplace. The great thing about this web-based platform is that it can be used for any training.

Websites:

We create websites to support staff in compliance-related matters. These sites also provide training on how to draft consumer-facing documents such as simple agreements, terms and conditions and marketing materials, and how to effectively manage complaints. We do everything from writing copy and designing the website to coding.
