Abstract

African countries are at various stages of implementing e-commerce and e-government infrastrutures. The need to be aware of the risks, threats and vulnerabilites that can accrue to such environments is also tempered with the need to implement appropriate legislations to cater for criminal activity that will target these environments. This article provides insight to computer crime laws and the proposal and benefits of developing a Pan African Cyber Crime Legal Framework.
