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, cybersecurity and plain language laws). We do this by following our four step compliance process.

The Governing Body’s Responsibility regards Compliance

According to the King Code, the governing body should:

  • provide strategic direction on compliance,
  • approve policy on compliance,
  • adopt appropriate standards and frameworks,
  • delegate to management responsibility for implementing and embedding policy,
  • oversee that management manages compliance, including that they:
    • understand that compliance creates obligations, and affords rights or protections,
    • take a holistic view of how laws relate to each other,
    • have relationships with regulators and professional bodies,
    • respond to changes in the regulatory environment,
  • review the organisation’s compliance function, and
  • disclose the compliance efforts of the organisation and the penalties of non-compliance.

The Michalsons IT Legal Framework is a good example of a framework organisations can adopt.

You must adopt a holistic view
