ISO is the abbreviation for the International Organisation for Standardisation, a global organisation with 167 member countries. South Africa is represented by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS). When it comes to international standard adoption, approvals or changes, each country has one equal vote. The South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) is in charge of accrediting organisations such as the SABS, verifying that it is a competent certification body.

Possible causes include a camera or photoflash unit failure, inadequate electrical contact at the connection between the two, or an incorrect signal sent to the photoflash unit for fire.
The ISO/IEC 27002:2022 also became available on the ISO standards store on that day. This document aims to provide controls for information security, cybersecurity, as well as privacy protection. These controls function to provide a clear structure that can be used throughout an organisation and to manage a broader risk profile.
