|CPD Hours:||Attendance at this seminar will secure 4 hour/s verifiable CPD points including other professional bodies (SAICA, SAIBA, ACCA, IACSA, IRBA & etc)|
Accountable institutions must comply with the Financial Centre Intelligence Act or they could face heavy penalties. Part of the requirements of the FIC Act is to perform customer due diligence procedures. This means that accountable institutions will have to process personal information. POPI requires responsible parties to process personal information in compliance with the POPI Act. This requires entities to ensure information is obtained in the right way and safeguarded properly. How do these requirements affect your processing of information under FICA? Do you need consent and can clients refuse to provide you with information due to POPI? Are you allowed to share this information or report your client? Join us in this informative session where we discuss the requirements on FICA and POPI, and importantly how they interact and affect one another.
