In the POPI Act all conditions for lawful processing, place some reliance on the correctness and completeness of data, specifically Condition 5. The further requirement in the act of defining the data leads to the consideration of the three quality criteria of information e.g. Intrinsic, Contextual and Security. This requires an appropriate data management capability in information governance and architecture.
Our methodology for POPIA projects relies on our capability to assess, understand and apply the international data management standards. Based on their experience, our subject matter experts can apply the above standards to a “fit for purpose” application to business.
