Certification Benefits

The Value of Certification

The Protection of Personal Information Act requires every public and private body to appoint an Information Officer and, if necessary, deputy information officers who are responsible for encouraging compliance with the conditions for the lawful processing of personal information, dealing with requests made regarding personal information, and working with the Information Regulator.

Skilled information officers are in high demand and the CPIO designation is what tells employers you are knowledgeable in data protection legislation generally, and have specific practical knowledge and expertise in South Africa's Protection of Personal Information Act, its regulations, guidelines and related legislation.
