Can you implement POPI yourself?

Yes, you can-with the Gintan Luthuli Associates do it yourself POPI documentary toolkit. The Protection of Personal Information Act is an act that regulates and guides the collection, processing, holding and deletion of personal information. This means that in order to comply with the POPI Act a system needs to be put into place. The POPI system will need to include:

  • Categorization of needs in the sense of “what is it I’m dealing with?”
  • Impact and Risk Assessments in order to specifically target identified risks. Automated templates provided.
  • Policies and procedures to deal with identified needs and requirements by way of easy and effective systems to enable your POPI Compliance implementation. e. Data Protection Policies, Data Breach Procedures, Security-Breach Management, Privacy Notices, Human Resource issues, Refund Policies etc.
  • Manageable administration in respect of dealing with Requests and Rights of Data Subjects.
  • Appointment of the Information Officer, system managers and administrators
  • Employee Agreements, 3rd Party and Operator Agreements as well as Information Officer- and Deputy Officer- Appointments detailing their duties and responsibilities. All sample documentation is provided in the GLA toolkit. Add your company logo and you’re ready!
