  • Cybercrimes Bill Webinar

The Cybercrimes Bill has been tabled in Parliament. The latest version of the Bill is an improvement from the previous versions, however, it is still very concerning. If the Cybercrimes Bill is passed as it currently is, it will have a significantly negative effect on all South Africans. We offer a practical webinar to help organisations get up to speed quickly with the latest developments on this new law.


  • Raise your awareness by getting a high-level overview of the latest version of the Cybercrimes Bill.
  • Identify key issues with the Cybercrimes Bill and the potential negative impact of this Bill on your organisation by asking questions and seeing what others are concerned about.
  • Determine what actions you need to take now and in the future and how Michalsons can help you.
