Cyber Liability & Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI)

17 February 2016, 13:23

tracyp

New as it is, 2016 is fast becoming a year of heightened cyber risk. This month, hacktivist group Anonymous declared war on the South African government – and began by publishing a hacked database of government employee information. The group has also named corrupt South African corporate interests as a target – part of a global trend towards an increasingly complex world of cyberthreat, terror, and counter-terror.

As technology and risk evolve, all of this will necessitate a global, forward-looking, and layered security response to protect communities and commerce from the new and as yet inconceivable. These changes are already happening in the industry on a local and international level. Lloyd’s of London recently announced the release of a set of common core data requirements for cyber risks, which is seeing some parallel in South Africa through POPI and the (controversial) Cybercrimes and Cybersecurity Bill.

The speakers will unpack where businesses, from the small to the corporate, and individuals, are most vulnerable to liabilities arising from cyber crime – and the evolving insurance solutions available locally for your clients.

Speakers will share real-life Lloyd’s claim examples, unpack some of the most notorious cyber cases and their ramifications, discuss the latest regulatory developments and their impact on liability, and share data on how costly these can prove to companies. The seminar will enable delegates to assist their clients in crafting strategies that deal successfully with this scourge.
