ABOUT GDPR AND POPIA
General Data Protection Regulation is a European legislation that was designed to reinforce laws that protect personal and private information of individuals. It was implemented on the 25th of May 2018. The regulation states that companies are expected to limit the processing, and collect only the data that is necessary, in a transparent and lawful manner and may not keep said data once the processing purpose is complete. The subjects have the right to request the information the company has processed of theirs, what the company does with it, and has rights to request deletion or change of that data. Any company or group that processes ANY form of information of European residents must comply, and non compliance can result in fines up to €20 million or 4% of their annual turnover.
Protection of Personal Information Act is similar and requires a business to regulate every step of how they process personal information, from the moment it is processed, to the moment it is destroyed. It is a South African based regulation aligning us to international data protection laws. It is not yet enforceable but is expected to be implemented mid to late 2019. Companies with employees, customers, suppliers, business partners that process or are in possession of the personal information are required to comply. Yes, this does include you.
