Assure sustainable privacy compliance
Velisa Africa Academy, in conjunction with Data Horizons, is pleased to offer our “Role of the Information Officer” training workshop, which is specifically designed for Information Officers, Deputy Information Officers, Risk & Compliance and Legal team members as well as persons heading up an organisation’s Privacy Program.
There is currently no accredited certification in South Africa for Information Officers, but this workshop will ensure that attendees have a very clear and practical understanding of the role and responsibilities of the Information Officer, what a well-established framework and program for Privacy Management looks like as well the operational activities involved.
The training workshop is run as a group workshop with all attendees being invited to share their experiences and questions, A practical, best-practices approach to privacy management is taken, and the important role of the Information Officer is examined in detail, along with operational requirements, with information from POPIA, PAIA and the Information Regulator Guidance Note being considered.
The training is led by an expert in international privacy field, with in-depth understanding of the various facets of the POPI Act and other privacy regulation from around the world.(Optional, one-on-one call or in-person meetings can be arranged on a consultancy basis with individual information officers to discuss their specific needs, questions and organisation-specific requirements).
