PrivSec South Africa

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is widely seen as the gold standard for data protection worldwide. While EU law has clearly inspired South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA), there are some crucial differences between the two laws that any business operating in South Africa should understand.

  1. The POPIA Covers Data About Corporations — Not Just People
  2. The POPIA’s Rules on Children’s Data Are Stricter
  3. Every POPIA-Covered Company Must Appoint an Executive-Level ‘Information Officer’

Organisations need to ensure they understand the differences in regional data protection laws, and mustn’t make the mistake of believing because they are complying with GDPR, they will be complying with POPIA or other global data protection regulations. 

We'd like to invite you to attend our PrivSec South Africa livestream experience, held on a state of the art virtual event platform with over 30 expert speakers delivering 10 deep-dive sessions on data protection, privacy and security.

This event will deep-dive into POPIA, and will also explore what organisations who are GDPR compliant need to do to ensure they are also POPIA compliant. You'll also gain insights into the South Africa Cybercrime Act, and will analyse the regions overall approach to data protection, privacy and security. 

This event is a must attend for any organisation operating in South Africa, or planning on doing so in the future. 

And it's also all completely free of charge, recorded and available to view on-demand if you're unable to attend live.
