Securiti announces a $75M Series C Funding RoundView
To protect the data of individuals in South Africa, Parliament passed the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) on 19th November 2013. The commencement date of sections establishing the national data protection authority was 11th April 2014. The commencement date of the remaining sections (excluding sections 110 and 114(4)) was 1st July 2020. POPIA came into effect on July 1st, 2021 and the Regulator is now able to take enforcement actions against any violations.
POPIA gives data subjects their constitutional right to privacy by safeguarding their personal information when processed by an organization and balancing the right to privacy against other rights. It also aims to protect important interests including the free flow of information within the Republic and across international borders. It also provides individuals the right to make requests in relation to their data and the ability to make complaints to the Regulator for violations of POPIA which carry serious reputational, financial, and operational risks.
Securiti enables organizations to comply with the POPIA regulations through AI-driven PI data discovery, DSR automation, documented accountability, enhanced visibility into data processing activities and AI-driven process automation.
