Prevention is better than the cure (assuming there is a cure!)
You can’t undo data leaks
Responsible data protection practices can give you a competitive advantage … and help you achieve more of your objectives
Options Consent Legitimate interests Contract conclusion or performance
Transparency is your diﬀerentiator You have little to gain by hiding your activities
Poor data protection practices can have disastrous reputational consequences
Who do you trust?
POPI places much emphasis on security “A responsible party must secure the integrity and conﬁdentiality of personal information in its possession or under its control by taking appropriate, reasonable technical and organisational measures …” - Section 19 “A responsible party must, in terms of a written contract between the 10 responsible party and the operator, ensure that the operator which processes personal information for the responsible party establishes and maintains the security measures referred to in section 19 …” - Section 21
Avoid court if you can It is a drawn out process and reputational harm is much more immediate and potentially more severe.
Identify breaches Fix vulnerabilities Be transparent and proactive
