POPIA for Schools
May 20 @ 08:30 - May 21 @ 12:00 SAST
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.
- 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 business there. At this stage, there are only a few months remaining of the grace period, so it’s vitally important to dedicate time to your compliance!
The half day workshops will take place on the 20th and 21st of May 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 15 people.
