APPOINT A POPI COMPLIANCE OFFICER AND EDUCATE EMPLOYEES
It is a good idea to outsource the education to your employees, and you can then also decide who will be the best person to be your COMPLIANCE OFFICER, if you don’t already have someone in mind
IMPLEMENT POPI ACT COMPLIANCE POLICIES
DRAFT A PAIA MANUAL
PAIA is not a fruitsalad! You need to comply with the PROMOTION OF ACCESS TO INFORMATION ACT (PAIA)
Your PAIA MANUAL is drafted in accordance to your specific business whether you are a Public or Private body.
It’s as simple as you drafted these very necessary policies and educated everyone in your business, now actually apply it!
YOU ARE GOOD TO GO-
You will now avoid penalties of up to R10 Million or 10 years imprisonment
