Cybersecurity and Cybercrime

Posted in Access to Information

In 2016 ODAC began a partnership with Privacy International to explore the intersections between cybercrime and cybersecurity regulation, with human rights. Whilst engaging with partners in Malawi and Zimbabwe, we focused in particular on the attempts by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development in South Africa to push a Cybercrime and Cybersecurity Bill through to Parliament, which in its early iterations seemed markedly unconstitutional.

 To ensure the sustainability of these efforts, ODAC have created a document outlining the lessons learned that we hope will be of value to our partners everywhere. This document can be downloaded here.

We are also proud to launch our policy brief on the Cybercrimes and Cybersecurity legislative process in South Africa, which you can read here:
