Cyber crimes are not limited to the conduct mentioned in the ECT Act. There are also other statutes that apply to the prosecution of cyber crimes. For example, in terms of the Prevention of Organized Crime Act 121 of 1998 (POCA) and the Financial Intelligence Centre Act 38 of 2001 (FICA), the prevention of all the crimes (as applicable to the cyber environment) listed is highlighted. Money laundering and other financial crimes that nowadays are committed online may also contravene the Exchange Control Regulations. Also noteworthy is the National Gambling Act 7 of 2004. Under section 89, any form of unlicensed gambling is unlawful and a person found guilty of this offence may be imprisoned for a period of two years.
