We have extensive experience providing training on the impact of the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act and outlining the best ways to comply with the POPI.

We help many different organisations from many different industries comply with POPI. What we’ve realized is that:

  • some organisations want to comply themselves (for example, by attending one of our workshops described on this page),
  • others want to comply with our guidance by joining the Michalsons POPI Compliance Programme, and
  • others want us to do what needs to be done to comply for them by asking us to quote on specific action items.
