Registration of Information Officer
All organisations which collect Personal Information need to register one of their personnel as an Information Officer. In most instances this person will be the head of your organisation, but can be another person who is at management level within the organisation.
Appointing of your Information Officer.
As there are many potential candidates within your organisation, and many people involved with POPI, choosing a IO is not straightforward in all cases.
What is the structure of your business and how many people will you need? Are you considering appointing deputies or just an Officer? Should one deal with PAIA and the other with POPI? Who is the accountable and who is the responsible? Should you have one for the group or each entity within the group of companies?
If you have any questions regarding this, please schedule a call with us here
Registration Deadline is 1 February 2022
All Information Officers need to be registered with the Information Regulator by 1 February 2022. This deadline has been pushed out from what it was previously.
