Protection of Personal Information Act
South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act aims to ensure that organisations operating in South Africa exercise proper care when collecting, storing or sharing personal data.
Thales eSecurity’s Vormetric Data Security Platform provides tools you need to help comply with the POPI Act, and prevent data breaches. Should a breach occur, you may be able to avoid the public breach notification if affected data has been encrypted with the Vormetric Platform.
Thales eSecurity supports your compliance efforts by helping you:
- Prevent breaches through granular access controls and separating privileged user access from sensitive data
- Avoid breach notification requirements by encrypting or tokenizing the data
- Identify irregular access patterns and breaches in progress through security intelligence logs
