The POPI Act came into full effect on the 1st of July 2020 after which organisations and practitioners were given 12 months to work towards POPIA compliancy.
Most of us have heard about the POPI Act, and are familiar with the main principles behind the Act. Becoming fully POPI Act compliant can be a daunting task. In this workshop practical steps to implement in ensuring POPI Compliancy will be discussed. This workshop will provide you with knowledge, skills and practical tips to assist you to be POPIA compliant by the 30th of June 2021.
This workshop is hosted by Ethics Simplified, and presented by Anita Kleinsmidt. Anita is an radiographer who studied towards an LLM and a Post Gradute Diploma in Applied Ethics. She moved into medical law and ethics after practising at law firms in Johannesburg and at the AIDS Law Project (renamed as Section 27). She lectured medical ethics and law at Wits Medical School and most recently at Stellenbosch University. Anita is currently persuing her PhD and is currently assisting SMEs in becoming POPIA Compliant.
