Security & privacy
Cyber security is essential for the exercise of both online and offline rights, as it is key to privacy and the protection of personal data. At APC we understand the need for a cyber crime and cyber security bill to make South Africa a safer place online. However, we suggest, along with many experts from different backgrounds, that the Bill be rejected in its current form.
At APC, we remain concerned about the proposed Prevention of Electronic Crimes Bill in Pakistan which poses grave risks to freedom of expression, the right to privacy, and access to information in the country.
