I represent a Non-profit community driven local chapter of a Global NGO
called OWASP (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Main_Page). As OWASP Cape
Town (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Cape_Town) we partnered with Mark
Heyink to produce comments for the Bill.

Our document comprises technical knowledge on aspects of the bill, that
we publicly gathered from Information Security professionals and ICT
professionals in our community. We have grave concerns on aspects of the
bill and we call for redrafting of large sections. Even the IT
terminology is inaccurate and we fear the repercussions this bill could
have on innocent individuals or the thriving ICT/IT sector in South Africa.

We call on government to delay the bill to allow better drafting and
partnership with private organizations such as OWASP Cape Town, Privacy
Online (www.privacyonline.co.za) and the man Information Security
companies in South Africa.

Attached are both the google document of the final version and a .docx

Only together can we secure our infrastructure for tomorrow.
