Leading ICT distributor Pinnacle is excited to introduce the launch of their new Cybersecurity division – Cybersecurity Solutions.
The launch of Pinnacle’s cybersecurity offering comes as digital transformation for many organisations is still very much on-going, despite being catapulted into operating remotely and digitally throughout the last 12 months.
Businesses big or small, should not be left exposed and vulnerable to cyber threats and attacks, instead we should plan for that eventuality. It’s like an insurance plan on your company data. You do not want to be caught without it. It is said that there are two types of cybersecurity customers; those who have had a security breach and those who are still going to have a security breach.
All entities must ensure compliance by 1 July 2021 for South Africa’s data protection law, POPIA, and tying into this is the Cybercrime and Cybersecurity Bill. The Bill is set to address cybercrime and cybersecurity in South Africa and introduce several provisions aimed at protecting data subjects from data breaches. This Bill and POPIA will, in collaboration, broaden the South African legislative framework relating to data protection and privacy, and bring South Africa in line with the international guidelines.
