Understanding POPI
Compliance

For the protection of citizen’s personal information, the South African government enacted the Protection of Personal Information (PoPI) Act in 2020. It was enforced in 2021 and is applicable to all the large, medium and small public and private organizations based in or outside South Africa, dealing with the personal information of South Africans. The Act states punishment for non compliance. The maximum fine that can be levied is up to R10 million with a prison time for extreme cases.

An increased number of organizations that have integrated ISMS (Information Security Management Systems) to protect information. However, they lack skilled personnel to tweak them as per PoPI guidelines.

Implementation

We channel our expertise in cybersecurity compliance such as PoPI to provide organizations with 360 degree compliance fulfillment. For this, we engage in a systematic process, which comprises three primary steps – PoPI implementation, PoPI Monitoring and PoPI.
Assessments and Gap Analysis
We engage in a full blown assessment of your status quo IT infrastructure and conduct an extensive PoPi compliance gap analysis. We ensure that no vulnerability or gaps are left out and that all the aspects including guidelines and regulations are encompassed while conducting the assessment.
Developing Compliance Plan
Once we are done assessing your status quo infrastructure of compliance fulfillment, we devise a plan that encompasses all the security best practices, policies, procedures and measures that are to be taken for a complete PoPI compliance. It is the most critical step since it directly impacts which entities will be affected and what will be the methodologies used for ensuring compliance.
Rollout
After creating the compliance plan we move towards execution. We engage in overall improvement of your cybersecurity posture by implementing our services. We deploy services that utilize cutting edge solutions such as SIEM which provides us with all the necessary events and logs for compliance. We safeguard all of your information assets and deploy all the necessary technologies specified in PoPI guidelines.
Post Implementation auditing
Post implementation we engage in head to toe audit of an organization’s infrastructure. This allows us to gain information about all the aspects left out. In this, the infrastructure is assessed for deviations from the compliance plan and it is ensured that all the guidelines and regulations are fulfilled as stated in the PoPI Act.

PoPI Monitoring

Since the threat landscape is continuously evolving and the bad actors are becoming more sophisticated with time, it is imperative that the security infrastructure is updated from time to time and information is monitored continuously. We continuously engage in file integrity monitoring to ensure that all the digital information assets stay protected and their integrity remains intact. We deploy our leading edge managed services that provide extensive 360 degree visibility of information across your organization. Services such as SIEM as a service, SOC as service and VAPT services play the critical role of information security through 24/7/365 monitoring, detection and response to threats and vulnerabilities. These managed services ensure that there is no margin for error in terms of PoPI compliance.

PoPI Training

Behind most of the cyber security vulnerability there is human error involved. Also, it is critical to prepare your organization against insider threats that may lead to compromise of sensitive information. Therefore, we engage in devising training modules such that make sure that PoPI regulations pertaining to information security are complied across the organization at all the levels. We create awareness amongst users with some of the best information security practices that they can individually adopt to secure themselves digitally.
