POPIA will finally commence from 1 July 2020 and all the requirements that relate to the protection of personal information will then come into force.

As POPIA applies to all local and foreign organisations in South Africa that are collecting, using or handling consumers’ personal information, including names, identity numbers, ages and addresses, iFacts is proud to say that we have over the past few years worked hard to become and remain compliant with POPIA. We can assure that our customers’ interests are protected.

POPIA to-do list for businesses includes:

It is now time to get your company POPIA compliant and to protect consumers personal information.
