The IDEAL Data Privacy Program

IDEAL was created specifically to meet the needs of the South African market which has had limited prior exposure to data privacy legislation. As every organisation is unique, a ”one-size fits all” approach doesn’t work well, whereas the 5 phase IDEAL program was created to be tailored to meet specific requirements.

With its broad range of services and packages, IDEAL is designed to work for you no matter, whether it’s the full program or one of its key components:

Initiation of a data privacy solution is often a daunting prospect as many organisations lack the resources, experience or even basic knowledge of what to do or where to start. IDEAL helps you understand your compliance obligations and gives you guidance on how to formulate a practical plan

Determining your level or compliance and identifying your gaps and vulnerabilities is a critical step in protecting your business. An IDEAL Data Privacy Impact Assessment (DPIA) gives you not only the information you need, but also provides an excellent framework to follow to enable you to implement the solutions at your own pace.

Embedding the optimum solutions in your business effectively is fundamental in creating a sustainable compliance framework. Staff awareness, specialist training of key personnel, development of new policies & procedures are just some of the numerous challenges facing business leaders that the IDEAL program has been created to help with.

Adherence to the new ways of working, conditions and regulations also needs to be carefully monitored to ensure you are actually keeping on track while your business operates. IDEAL provides a practical auditing solution to assess your level of compliance and update you on your progress.

Learning lessons also helps keep you up to date with changes and updates in the Data Privacy environment. As the legislation gets more fully implemented and the Regulator begins to make judgements so the POPI Act will evolve and change. It is vital for businesses to stay up to date with the ever-changing world and IDEAL is designed to keep you informed.
