    Since 2013 the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) has been a point of contention for many businesses. What is POPIA? Why is it important? How do I get POPIA compliant? What is personal information in terms of POPIA? and what solutions are there to this challenge? Well, here are the answers:

    The Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act was passed with the intention of protecting the constitutional right to privacy. Any information that might single out individuals is now by law to be respected by businesses and other organisations alike. Personal information refers to anything that can identify an individual including email addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers, and other online identifiers.
