How likely is it that a breach of POPI act will lead to a CEO of a tech giant being subject to jail?Will it really be the CEO or other officials?
The South African POPI Act could impose imprisonment on companies processing data unlawfully.
Most tech giants do business in South Africa and do collect data and have faced fines for GDPR violations.
Could South Africa drag them to jail? How do the CEOs protect themselves?
(For more clarification: the penalty for not obeying the law is jail. So the CEOs can be extradicted.)
