Compliance Services


CyberTAN offers several compliance focused services including POPIA, GDPR and PCI-DSS. Data privacy, confidential information, financial data, intellectual property and many other forms of sensitive data are targeted by cybercriminals. Implementing the necessary controls, policies and procedures goes along way to managing this risk but is not enough. We must test, validate, verify, and maintain this posture to really have an impact. Our services are designed to improve your existing posture and reduce risk by using either a product, service or both. The choice is yours.


The POPI Act enforces the right to privacy and includes a data subject's right to be protected against any unlawful collection, retention, dissemination and use of their personal information.

Companies are required to receive consent from individuals before they can obtain, retain and process personal information for communication or any other purpose. The definition of "Personal Information" includes contact details, demographic information, personal history (Financial, Medical etc), as well as communication records to mention a few.

A greater understanding of the manner in which personal information is stored and processed is highlighted by the Act.  This means that the systems, processes and how logical and physical access is maintained and managed for the systems and areas housing personal information all need to be considered.

Protection of Personal Information requires extra vigilance in all aspects of physical and information security.  The POPI Act requires that a set of streamlined processes and systems must be established that can easily identify where personal information is stored, understand how this information is processed physically and electronically, who has access to this information, as well as for what purpose it is required.

CyberTAN Compliance ToolKit - baseline tools to improve data security

The CyberTAN Compliance ToolKit© (otherwise referred to as the POPIA ToolKit©) aims at addressing data security in a non-intrusive, cost effective way, focused on Principle 7: of the POPI Act. By combining two services as a baseline minimum this kit provides you with a starting point to address what we believe is "reasonable".  Ideally suited to SMME's, although not limited to SMME's, this kit can scale to the size of your organisation, budget, is flexible and offers access to several add-on options. Additionally, we have included access to Cyber Liability Insurance to provide you with a safety net since there is no silver bullet in security.

Principle 7 of POPIA essentially states that a responsible party must secure the integrity and confidentiality of personal information under its control by taking appropriate, reasonable technical and organisational measures to prevent loss, damage, unauthorised destruction, and unauthorised access to or processing of personal information. To facilitate this, the responsible party must take reasonable measures to identify all reasonably foreseeable internal and external risks to personal information, establish and maintain appropriate safeguards against the identified risks, regularly verify that the safeguards are effectively implemented, and ensure that the safeguards are continually updated based on newly identified risks.

What’s considered reasonable for one organisation may not be reasonable for another. This is especially true for businesses who have a limited understanding of POPIA/GDPR and how it relates to their business.
