Hi Everyone

We have been requested by the South African government's Justice
department to advise them on the redrafting of the Cyber Crimes Bill
This indicates that our efforts (and the efforts of others) providing
public commentary to the bill has been successful.

I write this email to request all legal, policy and any other knowledge
within the OWASP community to address this topic further. This bill
infringes on privacy, lack protection for whistleblowers & journalists,
doesn't have enough provisions for infosec research and lack good
technical input.

As a leader of OWASP Cape Town chapter we request all help we can get to
improve our case against the current draft of this bill.
