The Departments of Telecommunications and Postal Services receives its mandate for Cybersecurity and specifically for the development of Cybersecurity Awareness platforms and programs from the National Cybersecurity Policy framework (NCPF).

The NCPF was passed by Parliament in March 2012 and in part states “To effectively deal with Cybersecurity, it is prudent that civil society, government and the private sector play their part in ensuring South Africa has a culture of Cybersecurity.”

Our broad mandate also involves improving the confidence in citizens in the use of cyberspace and to ensure that it is a safe place to interact and transact.
