Our IAPP training is led by certified experts who will guide you through the details of privacy law and practical implementation.
Privacy is a significant topic in our information-driven age. Customers, Employees and Suppliers rightfully expect that their personal data will be treated with care, protected and not used for purposes for which it was not intended. These basic rights are the thrust of most privacy laws, such as South Africa’s POPIA, the European GDPR, America’s CCPA and Brazil’s LGDP, among many others. These laws apply almost without exception where personal data is being processed for business purposes.
Organisations must ensure that they act in compliance with these laws, and especially that all staff that have access to, process, or use personal information, are fully aware of their obligations and the rights of the data subject whose data is being managed – Ignore these principles and you risk losing customer trust, losing business or, even worse incurring a data breach or severe penalties from the regulator.
Professionals who understand these risks and the global information management practices needed to safeguard data are in high demand. That’s where IAPP certification comes in.
The International Association of Privacy Professionals, the IAPP, is the world’s best recognized authority on privacy of personal data, and it offers a range of certifications which are sought after by privacy professionals and organisations who wish to ensure knowledgeable and responsible employees.
IAPP Privacy training in South Africa will teach your staff how to institute better privacy practices, drive compliance and build a more effective data protection program.
