We do not do it for you, we advise you on how you should do it. We empower you to do it.

What is NOT included

There are limits to the Michalsons POPI Compliance Programme.

  • Compliance with other related laws, but we will take them into account. For example, the POPI Compliance Programme will not ensure you comply with PAIA or the GDPR, but we’ll take them into account.
  • Michalsons taking action for the member. For example, an attorney from Michalsons briefing the board in person or doing a private in-house workshop or meeting face-to-face at your offices.
  • Michalsons actually doing the things that need to be done to comply. For example, the 15% of the POPI Implementation action items that Michalsons can do (such as mapping your activities for you, drafting or reviewing your privacy policy, reviewing a PAIA manual or training all employees on POPI). The implementation action items will be different for each organisation and therefore we need to scope and cost them separately. Additional service providers and your own staff will have to do many of the implementation action items.
  • Determining your regulatory universe regards personal information.
  • Providing formal written POPI Opinions or Interpretations on issues that relate to your specific organisation.
  • Specific considerations for a particular industry.
  • Michalsons auditing that you comply with POPI.

We can do these things, but not as part of the programme. We can give you a fixed price quote for each one.

What the Programme is NOT

  • An eBook or a textbook on POPI.
  • A course on the POPI Act or a POPI Toolkit. It is much more than that.
  • An information security product that secures the personal information you process.
  • A tool (like a shredder or software) that helps you protect personal information.
  • A marketplace connecting those who need to comply with those who help organisations comply.
