POPIA and PAIA are the two sides of the same coin

August 5, 2021

Over the last year, organisations have been paying close attention to South Africa’s POPIA in light of its deadline of July 1, 2021 for compliance, and seeking to operationalise and automate POPIA requirements. The date also marked a transition of oversight of the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) to the Information Regulator. The overlap between requirements under POPIA and PAIA combined with a dedicated authority enforcing both will mean companies need to understand the intricacies of compliance with these two key laws.


Join Alexis Kateifides, Lead Centers of Excellence Counsel at OneTrust as well as the Michalsons Team with John Giles (Managing Attorney), Jason Stolzenberg (Candidate Attorney) and Lisa Emma-Iwuoha (Associate) for a deep-dive webinar examining South Africa’s POPIA and PAIA legal requirements and how OneTrust can help operationalising these.
