Sophos supports your efforts towards POPI compliance.

The Protection of Personal Information Act, commonly referred to as POPI, regulates how personal information of individuals in South Africa is collected, stored, processed, and shared.

POPI non-compliance can lead to fines of up to R10 million and imprisonment for between one and 10 years, in addition to the loss to reputation and potential income.
