POPI Act Training

POPI Act Training

POPI Act Training  offered by IACT-Africa includes  various aspects of the POPI Act in both classroom and online forms. It also includes innovative techniques which introduce an element of fun while learning.  Why is this training important?

The POPI Act provides a number of mechanisms for the lawful processing of personal information. While it is important to implement measures to process personal information in a lawful manner, if the people in an organisation don’t understand the act and its purpose, the chances of complying with requirements of the act are pretty slim.  Training is therefore a key aspect of your POPI Act compliance journey.

We have developed a set of unique and practical POPI Act training courses which cater for the following:

  • End users
  • Job role specific e.g. line managers, records managers, security specialists
  • Executive and directors for policy setting

  A description of the key courses is provided below:
