Popi Act penalty

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - METRO - Tanya Waterworth

TEN years in prison or a R10 mil­lion fine.

Those are the pos­si­bil­i­ties faced by com­pa­nies if they are not com­pli­ant with the Pro­tec­tion of Per­sonal In­for­ma­tion Act which is due to be im­ple­mented next year.

On Wed­nes­day, at the Eset IT Se­cu­rity Con­fer­ence, held in Dur­ban, speaker Drew van Vu­uren, founder and di­rec­tor of iDatasec, said the act would give ef­fect to the right to pri­vacy.

Data leaks of per­sonal in­for­ma­tion of ei­ther staff or cus­tomers will carry puni­tive mea­sures for com­pa­nies. |
