South Africa needs to become more stringent with its cyber security enforcement (May 2024)

South Africa's vulnerability to cyber crimes and overall attitude to cyber security must be urgently addressed if the country has any ambitions to become a global player in the digital economy. The current state of the country's Economic Crisis, which is worsening as we enter into a critical election period, is being exacerbated by the current volatility that the mining sector is experiencing regarding commodity demand and commodity prices. Many of the country's top economists have urged the government to diversify the South African economy.


"South Africa holds immense potential to be a major global player in the digital economy. Recent studies project that by 2030, Africa will surpass both China and India in population, and by 2035, one in four global workers will be African. It's crucial to envision the future of work and enable this workforce to thrive, thereby securing our digital economy ambitions," points out Trisha Govender, a Manager at the MANCOSA School of Information and Digital Technology (SIDT).
