One of the most disruptive compliance events for businesses in South African history, the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act seeks to regulate the processing of personal information and data breach notification.

"South Africa's GDPR"

The Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act brings South Africa in line with existing data protection laws around the world, aiming to protect PII, enforce an individual's right to privacy and provide guidelines for lawfully processing such information and notifying regulators and data holders in the event of a breach. Trustwave can help elevate your security posture and streamline your compliance process.

POPI: Fast Facts and Consequences


POPI applies to any company in South Africa that processes personal information.


Once an information protection regulator has been appointed to administer the law, companies will have 12 months to comply.
