Submission on National Data and Cloud Policy

The Free Market Foundation notes with serious concern the proposed National Data and Cloud Policy. 

In a post-COVID-19 world, those countries with the clearest to understand, rule of law-based regulatory frameworks will witness the greatest progress in terms of digitalisation and the eventual realisation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Unfortunately, as evidenced by the proposals contained in the Policy, the risk is that South Africa could well head in the opposite direction.

The proposed National Data and Cloud Policy will, if adopted, effectively nationalise data created in South Africa into the hands of the state.
