We’re excited to introduce you to the Michalsons POPI Compliance Programme. The programme is a set of related activities with the long-term aim of complying with the Protection of Personal Information Act.

Why the Michalsons POPI Compliance Programme?

We have been helping many different organisations from many different industries comply with POPI. What we’ve realised is that:

  1. some organisations want to comply themselves by attending one of our workshops,
  2. others want to comply with our guidance by joining the Michalsons POPI Compliance Programme, and
  3. others want us to do what needs to be done to comply for them by asking us to quote on specific action items.

To meet this need and to complement our other Privacy and Data Protection services we have developed the Michalsons POPI Compliance Programme.

When does it Start?

The programme officially starts on 1 March 2017, but it is a good idea to investigate whether it will work for you, now.

How can I assess whether it will work for my Organisation?

We work with organisations to help them comply with the POPI Act. Our compliance programme is not suitable for everyone, so we’d like to get to know more about you and your organisation. To best achieve this, we’re inviting you to complete the high-level POPI Impact Assessment questionnaire. (It will take you about four minutes to complete and there is no associated cost for completing the assessment questionnaire.)

Based on the information you provide, we’ll either send you an email with next steps to take, or set up call with you to discuss the impact of POPI on your organisation. Together we’ll decide whether our POPI Compliance Programme will meet your needs and be of value. We consider various criteria to establish whether you qualify.
