Over the last few years South African organisations have come under heavy fire as a result of non-compliance with business regulations. “The proper management of records is imperative in complying with the relevant Acts applicable to organisations in South Africa ” says Pavan Atluri, Bizmod consultant.
Records management goes beyond the implementation of the PoPI act. Organisations are required to verify that systems are in place to manage all their customer data. These systems need to address old and new data and showcase that any use of data is in accordance with compliance regulations.
