How does the POPI Act Protect Your Information?
The Protection of Personal Information Act (or POPI Act) is basically the same as the General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), which is also a data protection and privacy law in the European Union. To move with the times and mitigate associated modern-day risks, the need for these types of laws became more evident. South Africa officially enforced the POPI Act as of 1 July 2020, whereas the EU implemented the law on 25 May 2018.
Although companies don’t necessarily require your permission to collect certain data, it is how that data is managed that is governed by the POPI Act.

This includes ensuring that whatever data is collected is stored securely and that it is protected against potential data breaches.
