The Protection of Personal Information Act will soon be passed by parliament. The impact of the new law for business and government will be significant, especially for organisations dealing with personal data. Similar laws changed the business landscape in the E.U.

It will oblige organisations to set up new ways of dealing with personal information. It would mean reviewing existing relationships, processes and legal contracts. New policies will have to be drafted and implemented. A new set of obligations and penalties will be placed on organisations when they deal with personal data. The task of becoming legally compliant is large and organisations and employees need to begin early. Compliance will not only prevent penalties but also give organisations a competitive edge.

To ensure your organisation is ready for the new legislation BizTech is offering a training course on “The Protection of Personal Information in Business and Government”.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • Protection of Personal data        

  • The contents and operation of the “Protection of Personal Information Act”

  • What the legal obligations are of organisations and their employees

  • How the new law interacts with other legislation including The Consumer Protection Act and The Electronic Communications and Transactions Act
