GEARING UP FOR POPIA



How often do you receive a random spam marketing call and ask, “How did they get my personal information?”

Protecting privacy and personal information is not something you need to think about only in the workplace - it’s something you need to practice in your everyday life. In 2013, the government passed the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) to improve the protection of personal information that is retained by private and public bodies. Tiger Brands will have about one year to comply from the commencement date when the office of the Information Regulator is operationalised.






Firstly, it is important to know and understand “What is Personal Information?”
It includes the following:
Information relating to an identifiable, living, natural person, and where it is applicable, an identifiable, existing juristic person, including, but not limited to—





























The POPIA awareness programme seeks to drive privacy awareness campaigns through e-learning and various initiatives across the business to assist each employee to understand their role in protecting personal information.

Mobius Consulting has been appointed to perform the gap assessment with respect to the POPIA readiness of Tiger Brands.
