I will be speaking at the HMR Africa Healthcare Summit 2011 on 19 January 2011 at 2PM.  I will be talking about How POPI will affect you, but focusing on privacy in the healthcare industry.  The following are some of the things I will be covering:

  • Why privacy matters?
  • Know your obligations to protect Personal Information (PI)
  • PI includes information on mental health and well-being, medical history, blood type and biometric information
  • A person’s health is special PI – what does this mean for you?
  • What should you be doing now?

If you are a client of the firm, you are entailed to a 20% discount for the conference.  When you register simply mention that you are booking through Michalsons.
