Do you need help with legal compliance? We can help you to practically and effectively comply with the laws, rules, codes or standards that apply to you (especially data protection laws (like POPI), IT laws, cyber crime and cyber security and plain language laws). We do this by following our four step compliance process.
The Governing Body’s Responsibility regards Compliance
- set the direction (or strategy) for how the organisation should approach and address compliance,
- approve policy that gives effect to its direction and identifies the non-binding rules, codes and standards the organisation adopts,
- delegate to management the responsibility to manage compliance effectively,
- oversee compliance, including that the organisation:
- consider receiving periodic independent assurances on the effectiveness of compliance management,
- disclose the governance and management of compliance by the organisation, including an overview, focus areas, actions taken and plans,
- disclose material or repeated regulatory penalties, sanctions or fines for non-compliance,
- disclose any inspections by environmental regulators, findings of non-compliance and criminal sanctions or prosecutions. (Watch Before the Flood for the context of this practice).
