There is an acute scarcity of the highly skilled professionals that are needed by the country to manage the very real cybercrime threats that face South Africa. A number of different professionals from different sectors must be trained to make up a core response team for national threats that affect the running of the government and key business sectors which are most vulnerable to cybercrime. INSETA’s analysis of the insurance industry’s scarce and critical skills needs identifies that ICT professionals are in high demand for their technical skills and the needs are being prioritized by the sector.

Globally such skills are acutely scarce and countries are putting in place long terms strategies spanning in excess of 20 years to develop key skills in the area of cybercrime.

Similarly highly skilled experts would be needed to realistically test defences in a simulated environment to identify vulnerabilities. The Protection of Personal Information Act (Popi) stipulates that . . .
