PoPIA Readiness Assessment

Nearly every business out there has personal information about their staff and clients.

In fact, policies like FICA actually demand that we gather and keep personal and financial Data about said clients. But what happens if we misuse or lose this Data or accidentally leak it? To counter this, Vox offers a PoPIA readiness assessment service with the following options:

  • Ability to conduct an information audit, which determines:
    • What categories of personal information your organisation processes.
    • Why it is processed (what’s the purpose?)
    • Where and how you store the personal information.
    • Who you share personal information with?
  • Ability to appoint or work with an Information Officer.
  • Ability to conduct an Organisational Impact assessment
  • Ability to create an awareness guideline for the organisation and staff
  • Ability to run a Posture Assessment

The new Protection of Personal Information Act (PoPIA) has introduced conditions around how we process and store personal information. These conditions, if not met and resulting in a loss of Personal Information, can result in a fine or imprisonment (or both).

For this very reason it is important that one understands PoPIA, and whether you have the right processes and controls in place to protect your company and your Data.

How It Works
