South Africans have experienced several major data breaches. There was the real estate website that leaked 60 million ID numbers back in October and the online traffic fine payment site breach that saw nearly a million South Africans’ data records exposed last month.

We are anxious about losing our credit card numbers, our ID numbers, and our money to online rogues. But that’s not where our problems end.
