PRIVACY

Serious change is afoot in the world of privacy compliance.

And right at the forefront is local and international privacy regulation, including POPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act) and the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

But how do these changes apply to your business? Sure, you can consult a law firm to help you navigate the legislative minefield, but that will only get you so far. The Mobius Privacy team can do it in a way that makes strategic sense for you, building the necessary controls into your enterprise and business processes.

Our skill set goes far beyond gap assessments and single jurisdictional understanding, and is supported by experience in information security and governance. We Interpret all regulations and legislation from a practical point of view, we assess your situation, map accordingly, then assist in implementing controls simply, while taking your growth opportunities into account.
