2021-07-15

South Africa’s new Cybercrimes Act brings the country into line with international standards and complements existing legislation on the protection of personal information. It also reaches beyond computer-based offences by outlawing cyber-enabled crime and malicious communications. 

What should the government’s priorities be in translating the new law into action? This seminar will consider implementation challenges and how South Africa can leverage its commitments in regional and international cybercrime engagements.
