What is Data Privacy Day and what does it mean for your clients?

HandcuffsData Privacy Day highlights that privacy concerns exist in organisations wherever personal information is collected, processed and stored – in digital form or otherwise. Data Privacy Day relates to the Protection of Personal Information Act (PPIA) which creates duties and obligations on organisations to manage personal information in a manner that is compliant with global privacy standards.

Did you know that if organisations deal with third parties who are not PPIA compliant, they will be liable as a result? How can your clients protect their stakeholders’ personal information from all sides?

Promote client dialogue about third party outsourcing relationships and PPIA.
