In the age of (big) data being prevalent in virtually every business and most individuals’ day-to-day activities, ENSafrica’s data privacy and protection team are market leaders with unparalleled expertise and experience in providing proactive and reactive solutions for privacy compliance, data commercialisation, data philanthropy and data breach issues.
Compliance with data protection legislation, such as the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) in South Africa and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in the European Union, has resulted in major risks for businesses, with potential for fines, penalties, reputational loss and even jail time.
Our key differentiator is the proven experience and internationally recognised expertise of our data privacy law experts.
Another differentiator is our ENSafrica POPIA toolkit, a comprehensive compliance programme which gives businesses clear direction on requirements and is a quick and cost-effective way for you to fast track your POPIA compliance and manage risk. Based on South African law requirements and global best practice, including the GDPR, it can be implemented as your Protection of Personal Information Policy and used by your Information Officer to meet their compliance duties.
We also assist with all aspects of data breach and security compromise management, because a security compromise could have severe operational, reputational and financial consequences for your business.
