25 May 2018 deadline for GDPR compliance has come and gone!

This event will address the true cost and consequences of GDPR on South African companies working within the EU. It will provide detailed information in the form of practical and interactive mini-workshops to help guide delegates through the minefield that is the GDPR, from assessing your current internal policies and procedures all the way through to mitigating your risk of reputational damage.

The challenge for South African companies is to ensure they understand what it takes to be GDPR compliant, and why they should bother. They must be aware of the risks and the regulations that will impact on their business and their international reputation.

That's why we are hosting the GDPR Update 2018.

Comparing the implementation requirements of the GDPR to those of POPIA
Peter Hill, director, IT Governance Network

Complying with new data protection legislation is not easy. Both the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information Act are described as technical and complex. Often compliance initiatives drain resources and consume the time of key employees. This half day course will provide attendees with an overview of both the GDPR and POPIA, it will cover the similarities and the differences and focus on the key implementation steps to fulfil the legal obligations of the GDPR and POPIA.
