It has been a decade since talk of the Protection of Personal Information Act started. Ten. Years. And finally we have an effective date. It is 1 July 2020. That’s right; it means that we have until 30 June 2021 to become compliant.

We’ve been talking about it for so long that, understandably, many people are suffering from POPIA fatigue. This white paper is our attempt at getting you excited about compliance with the POPIA (yup, it’s absolutely possible!). It is a collection of lessons we have learnt over the years by asking why so many POPIA programmes fail.

What does ‘fail’ mean? For us, a failed programme is when we come back three years later, and we find significant levels of non-compliance. Or worse, unknown levels of non-compliance.

So how does that happen? And how can you avoid it? Well, download our white paper here and read on.
