Unsolicited Communications & POPIA
In South Africa we have the #Protection of Personal Protection Information Act, 2013 also known as the #POPIA. As a country, we are currently in the transition and implementation stage. The transitional provisions contained in section 114 of the Act, in effect state that all processing of personal information must within one year from 1 July 2020 conform to the Act. Hence, all entities that process personal data, have to be compliant as from 1 July 2021. Thereafter, penalties come into effect.
