POPI-Compliance for SMME Business Owners
Online Privacy Training

Having to comply with the POPI Act can leave you feeling like this…

We want to get you to this point…

This series of training courses is designed to assist small to medium size businesses to understand the principles and requirements of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) in PRACTICAL HOW-TO steps.

We will provide you with templates and information and help you to implement the POPI requirements.

We will discuss:

  • The new roles and competencies required by the POPI Act, which are typically implemented by a small, focused team, but which affect nearly the whole business
  • Functions, processes, systems, communications, databases and document libraries
  • Privacy assessments of changes, new systems and new suppliers

POPIA impacts directly on 20 business functions. We assist with function-specific requirements.

There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to POPI compliance.

What’s more, compliance and risk management can be used for more than just complying with the POPI Act.

All our classes aim to ensure that POPI integrates into your business for the long term, so enrol now in our practical courses to get to grips with POPI.


Enrol in POPI training to orient yourself with POPI regulations and manage data protection effectively within your organisation. Please find our course flyers here and below.
