The need to issue new laws and/or reformulate major amendments on existing ones quickly becomes evident from the very early stages of any IT related regulatory reforms process. Typically, the scope of any serious review of Regulatory Framework Strengthening requirements and recommendations concentrates on four key areas:
The enforcement of existing laws
Issuing supportive regulations to existing laws
Raising training and awareness levels
Procedural and implementation aspects
As is the case with most recommendations of this nature, the issues of ownership, responsibility, follow-up and prioritized implementation within reasonable time frames constitute the importantt deciding factors in terms of success or failure. Approaching issues objectively and in good faith as well as the willingness to support the calls for change and reform equally applies to all sectors. We have active experience in reviewing IT related Regulatory Frameworks and conducting needs assessments for change and reforms.
