  • Criminal Liability ito PoPIA – consequence of non-compliance

Learning outcomes

After attending this workshop, delegates will have an understanding of:

  • What PoPI is all about; Why PoPI exists; Who PoPI applies to and How this impacts on the organisation’s business
  • The 8 conditions of PoPIA and the consequences of non-compliance

Intended participants

This is an ideal workshop for everyone in the organisation to attend and to include as part of your induction for all new employees so that they have a good understanding of PoPIA and its effects from the onset of joining your organisation.
