Protection of Personal Information isn't new in South Africa. The Protection of Personal Information Bill was around in 2009, which meant that the discussion had been going on for years before that.
The Information Regulator published the "Regulations relating to the Protection of Personal Information" in the Government Gazette on 14th December 2018 42110, RG 10897, GoN 1383
Regardless of the timing, in terms of Section 114 (1) of the Act, "All processing of personal information must within one year after the commencement of this section be made to conform to this Act".
Find out different ways of protecting yourself and your privacy while browsing online or social media platforms to ensure that your personal information or online information isn't tracked or fraudlulently used or manipulated.
The biggest impact is on organisations that process lots of personal information, especially special personal information, children’s information, and account numbers.
