POPIA for School Information Officers

July 5 @ 08:30 - July 6 @ 12:00 SAST

Virtual Event


As a school, you are dealing with TONS of information! All day. Every day. From learners and parents, to your own employees, the management of Personal Information is key. As a school, you have to comply with privacy legislation – it’s not just the “big guys” that are going to be affected.

Sifting through the fear mongering and rumourmill can be difficult. In two half-day workshops aimed at the school’s Information Officer or Principal, I’ll take you through an introduction to what the South African regulations say about privacy, and how you can comply and continue business-as-usual as a school. POPIA will not stop you from operating, it will however mean some changes for your operations.

Topics covered:

  • What is POPIA and how does it affect you?
  • Components of an effective Privacy Programme
  • The principles of POPIA
  • The impact of POPIA on a school
  • Policies and Procedures you need to have in place
  • The duties of the Information Officer
  • Systems and risks
  • Records of Processing Activities
  • Contracts and the rights of individuals
  • Incident Response and Security
  • Risk management and ongoing management

It’s important to know that while we will cover what you need to do to comply, you’ll need to put in the work to get your school there. It’s vitally important to dedicate time to your compliance!

The half day workshops will take place on the 5th and 6th of July 2021 on Zoom, from 08:30 – 12:00. It is an interactive workshop, so bring your questions along! To ensure that we have valuable engagement, the training will only take a maximum of 20 people. Please note that this training is per person attending, and not intended for groups.
