Where?
POPIA applies to any organization that processes personal and sensitive information in the Republic of South Africa. It focuses on the actual location of data processing rather than on the individual whose data are being processed.
Why?
Protecting the PII of your clients and partners increases your public reputation, prevents embarrassing data leaks, and increases your karma, that’s why. As a bonus, it helps you to avoid possible fines or criminal penalties.
What?
POPIA describes personal information as any information relating to an identifiable person, company, or legal entity, protecting individuals as well as companies. Examples include race, gender, and email addresses.
