PoPI Act Seminar

28 March 2017

Data privacy makes business sense

Regardless of whether privacy legislation is in place or not, privacy practices are not only a key part of corporate governance but can strengthen an organisation’s competitive edge. Today, organisations are collecting growing amounts of personal information, which makes the information vulnerable to a variety of risks such as loss, misuse, unauthorised access and unauthorised disclosure. These risks need to be addressed in a practical way, tailored to each organisation’s particular environment.
