This audit focuses on issues around the legality of transactions that organisations conclude electronically (including contracting by email and SMS), the legal issues around electronic VAT invoices and email.

If the organisation has a VANS license, we also focus on:

  1. Reviewing its existing VANS and other licences as well as any spectrum allocation, including change of control reporting, determination of licence fees and USAASA contributions, ICASA BEE requirements, self-provision etc and
  2. Licence confirmation and licence conversion under the new Electronic Communications Act.

We perform a GAP analysis where we:

  1. Assess the extent to which an organisation is “compliant” with applicable ICT law; and
  2. Assess the legal risks posed by the use of information and communications technology in organisations.

Where necessary, we recommend solutions which would ensure compliance with South African regulatory requirements and implement best practice where sound business practice, rather than a legal requirement, dictate that risk be managed.
