POPI Solutions is an IACT-Africa website dedicated to providing information about the Protection of Personal Information  Act, 2013 (POPI Act / POPIA) and international Privacy practices. It also provides information about our Products and Services for helping organisations to prepare for compliance with the POPI Act.

The long waited commencement of the POPI Act (POPIA) was announced  by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 22 June 2020 with the enforcement date set for 30 June 2021.  A  twelve month transition (or grace) period ommenced to give organisations time to implement compliance measures.  After this date, organisations failing to comply with POPIA could suffer significant penalties.

In view of the above, there is now a legal obligation for achieving compliance.  We therefore encourage organisations to start preparing for compliance sooner than later as these initiatives can take months to complete even in small organisations.

Apart from the potential penalties for non-compliance,  there are significant business benefits to be obtained from implementing appropriate and reasonable measures for protecting the personal information of your customers, staff, suppliers and other stakeholders.  They will also enable you to demonstrate high levels of compliance with the POPI Act /POPIA.

The  IACT-Africa POPI Solutions Products and Services will assist you in implementing appropriate and reasonable measures as well as obtaining business benefits are shown below.
