Data Protection requires teamwork


Data Governance is the foundation of data protection

Chief Data Officers know that without data governance corporations are vulnerable.

PoPIA is built upon a foundation of sound data governance.

Privacy regulations are about much more than security

We need to apply data protection principles, as defined by PoPIA and other privacy regulations, throughout the data life cycle.

This means:

  • Defining clear accountability for personal data at every level of your business
  • Understanding the legal uses of personal data, both at the point of capture and as it moves through your data landscape
  • Ensuring data integrity and quality
  • Managing data security and access, according to the legal uses of data in your business
  • Engaging the data subject through data transparency

Our enterprise-wide data catalogue ensures ownership and policies for the use of personal data; documents and classifies personal data across your enterprise, and automates key business processes to ensure that

  • that the right people are provided with the right information,
  • at the right time,

to deal with any potential breach of data privacy regulations such as

  • the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and
  • South Africa's Protection of Personal Information Act (PoPIA), and
  • Nigeria's Data Protection Regulation (DPR)

in a consistent and regulated way that is driven by your company's policies and legal opinion.
