Topic 2: Risk Register

March 19, 2021

POPI legislates the creation and maintenance of a risk register, specifically to identify potential risks that affect processing of personal information in businesses, these need to be regularly reviewed, verified and updated with responses to identified risks by taking the appropriate, reasonable technical and organisational measures.

South Africans who transfer onerous obligations in respect of data protection onto their outsource service providers, beware, the POPI Act prevents this type of reallocation of responsibility as set out in section 19.

Businesses will also be compelled to record and address the various risks and factors giving rise in cybercrime too.
