In the news

What happens when an employee leaves your business? Are they taking sensitive data with them? What about if they have been fired or retrenched?

The Protection Of Personal Information Act (POPIA) has been fully in effect for the past 12 months. Most South African businesses have taken steps to comply with POPIA, specifically around the following areas to ensure they are on the right side of the law:

• Reviewing and updating all customer, supplier and third-party agreements
• Implementing technical and organisational measures to protect and prevent unauthorised access to and obtaining of personal information
• Preparation of consent documentation and private notices
• Implementing measures for identified boundary flow of personal information
• Developing a culture of privacy by training staff, updating and implementing policies and procedures, and implementing awareness campaigns
• Implementing a data breach and incident response plan and policy
• Implementing a data access management system for the data subject in accordance with POPIA and the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) legislation

It’s 2am. I’ve just answered a frantic call from the CEO of a large local corporation. He has just received a ransomware demand, requesting the equivalent of R50 million in cybercurrency or all the personal data of the company’s clients will be released on the dark web.

He informs me that his IT team have already identified the breach and deleted it, but he still needs assistance with the ransomware demand.
