PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION ACT

Griessel Consulting is offering support to organisations and Information Officers towards compliance with data protection legislation in South Africa.

Even though the enforcement grace period ended by 1 July 2021, organisations still have to get their compliance in order, and it will remain an ongoing process. It is more important then ever to attain internal knowledge and skills relating to data privacy, and to be able to evaluate and addresss privacy risks on a continuous basis.   

  Whilst we do provide some templates and pro forma documents, our approach is to educate organisations about the required steps towards POPIA compliance and to assist them in achieving these goals. We do this through a combination of training, legal guidance and practical support, which can be customised according to your needs and resources.

PRACTICAL COMPLIANCE
