“First, Do No Harm” — Privacy, Data Security, and the POPI Act

Event | July 19, 2017 | 8:00 AM – 11:30 AM | Tshimologong Precinct, 39-47 Juta Street, Johannesburg, South Africa

Does your organisation have an internal or published privacy policy and how far along are you in thinking about your privacy and data security? Many civic tech projects gather personal data from people. We need to be asking important questions about privacy, and security of data: What information do we collect from our users and partners? What do we use it for? How do we secure it? What is our data retention policy? And finally, how well do we inform the people whose data we have about our answers to these questions?

Join this event run by Civic Tech Innovation Network for expert advice and insightful case studies from your civic tech peers, to guide you in getting to grips with these privacy and data security issues, the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI), as well as treating citizen data with the necessary respect it deserves.
