On 1 July, the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) came into full effect and introduced new regulations to protect one’s personal information and constitutional rights to privacy and access to information.
Businesses began sending out POPIA-related mailers, reminding users of their ability to ‘opt-out’ – but many were left wondering ‘what now?’.
To answer this question, Silicon Cape and Stellenbosch Network are hosting POPI Act: What Now? – a practical webinar for business owners and marketing managers unpacking next steps and the resources needed to take to properly manage your digital channels, marketing, and customer data.
We will begin with an overview of the Act, its legal implications, and what this means in terms of compliance by Aphindile Govuza, a Senior Associate at Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr and specialist in technology, media and telecommunications. Aphindile has extensive experience with drafting commercial agreements, ensuring due diligence, and helping businesses implement mobile application, website and privacy policies. He is also an advisor to local and international clients on, among others, the provisions of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act and POPIA.
Following this, we’ll be diving into what businesses need to be doing with their social media and digital platforms to maintain POPIA compliance with Tiaan van Zyl, the Digital Analytics Lead at Traffic Brand. With more than ten years of experience as a digital marketing analyst for platforms such as Google, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn, Tiaan has worked alongside leading organisations to execute a strong foundation of online data implementation, strategic marketing thinking, and a deep understanding of their customers and marketing efforts.
