Managing POPIA

The Protection of Personal Information Act, or POPIA legislation, is legislation that governs privacy and data protection in South Africa. The course Managing POPIA provides clear, engaging and practical online learning to meet the specific needs of managers and executives.  (There is also a POPIA course for employees, Understanding POPIA, here.)

Full POPIA governance training

Managing POPIA is for managers and executives, and provides a full grasp of POPIA. Delegates learn how to govern the application of POPIA in their organisations. This includes the capacity to identify how their organisations can become POPIA compliant, understanding of the role of the Information Officer in maintaining POPIA, and clarity on the relations between POPIA and the European Union’s privacy legislation, the GDPR..

There are three modules:

  • Introduction to POPIA explains the purpose of POPIA, the nature of personal and special data, the rights of data subjects, who is accountable for POPIA compliance, and the principles of processing personal information, including how to apply the principles in an organisation.
  • The role of the Information Officer and the powers of the Information Regulator includes the duties and capabilities of these roles, and how to appoint and register an Information Officer.
  • International concerns and direct marketing compares POPIA to the GDPR, providing an overview of the important sections of the GDPR and their implications for South African organisations, including the requirements for cross-border transfers and direct marketing under POPIA.

Smooth course delivery

For both courses, delegates have access to interactive, online learning material developed by an industry expert, including engaging videos, assessments, and relevant additional resources.

Managing POPIA can be completed in 7 hours, and is accredited for 6 CPD hours.

Upon successful completion of the final assessment, delegates will receive a Digital Certificate of Completion.
