MMA recently submitted comment and presented an oral submission on the Cyber Crimes and Cyber Security Bill (CCB). These submissions have also been supported by Media 24 and Kagiso Media.

One of the key issues MMA draws attention to, is the lack of any overarching internet governance policy on how current and proposed legislation – including the CCB – which deal with how information and digital rights (freedom of expression, access to information, and privacy) regulation is to be managed.

Another critical element MMA highlights is that MMA has neither had sight of any impact assessment for the CCB completed by the Socio-Economic Impact Assessment System (SEIAS) Unit established by the Cabinet, nor has it been made aware that an impact assessment has been completed and made publicly available.
