Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking Statement
Modern slavery is a serious and organised crime that destroys communities and causes significant harm to victims. It is the illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain, and involves people being coerced and forced into providing a service to others. It is a crime that affects people of all genders, ages (including children] and ethnicities and is a violation of fundamental human rights.
It is a priority for Performanta to ensure that we trade ethically, source responsibly and work to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking throughout our organisation and in our supply chain.
We are a provider of Cyber Security Services in the IT sector. We are part of The Performanta Croup, and its head office is based in South Africa. Performanta has over 140 employees and operates in 7 countries.
