  • Legal experts have bemoaned the lack of effective laws in SA to fight cyber crime and are calling for urgent regulatory reforms to address the deficiencies.
  • An example of a new offence would be if someone is using personal or financial information to commit an offence, hacking, unlawful interception of data, as well as computer-related forgery and uttering, extortion or terrorist activity.
  • Legal experts cite the South African Reserve Bank’s (SARB’s) directive on cloud computing and data offshoring as an exemplary regulatory effort to curb cyber crime.
