TIMESLIVE PODCASTS  |  BUSINESS LAW FOCUS
In this episode of the Business Law Focus podcast, Editor Evan Pickworth interviews Janet MacKenzie and Darryl Bernstein, experts from global law firm Baker McKenzie, on the implications of the recently enacted Cybercrimes and Cybersecurity Act. The criminalisation of harmful data messages and the intersection between this Act and the Protection of Personal Information Act is explored. The interview also discusses the weak levels of data privacy protection in Africa, with data privacy laws, which govern issues like data security and breaches, currently present in less than half of African countries.
