Practical Privacy for Recruiters – POPI is not a 4-letter word
June 26, 2020 @ 09:00 - 12:00 SASTR250
As a recruiter, you’re dealing with TONS of personal information. All day. Every day. The upcoming POPIA legislation is going to have quite the impact on your business, but it’s not the end of the world!
Sifting through the fear mongering and rumourmill can be difficult. In this 3 hour seminar, I’ll take you through an introduction to what the South African (and global) regulations say about privacy, and how you can comply and continue business-as-usual. POPIA will not stop you from operating, it will however mean some changes for your business.
- 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 recruitment business
- Policies and Procedures you need to have in place
- Quick wins that you can put in place now
The workshop will take place on the 26th of June 2020 on Zoom, from 9:00 – 12:00. It is an interactive workshop, so bring your questions along!
The password to attend the online meeting will be sent to registered attendees on Thursday the 25th of June. You MUST have registered to receive the password.
