Protection of personal information technology audits

One of the key aspects of security safeguards required in terms of the Protection of Personal Information Act is that reasonable technical measures to prevent loss of or damage to or unauthorised destruction of personal information and unlawful access to or processing of personal information may be prevented.

In many instances entities use technologies which have the appropriate capabilities to provide the safeguards, however they are configured and often used in a manner which defeats these statutory obligations.

Privacy Online can provide technology audits which address the use of particular technologies and the configuration of the technologies to assist an entity in fulfilling its security safeguards obligation.
