Advancing cyber security capacities for digital transformation of developing countries

Suggest a page edit


Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the massively increased use of Internet and teleworking options raise the risks of using unsecure devices and networks while accessing sensitive governmental and corporate IT systems. COVID-19 has also caused the spread of phishing scams and fake news. The need for sustainable cyber security development is timelier than ever to protect countries’ cyber space and continue the digital transformation.

The project continues developing secure digital societies in developing countries by evaluating cyber security situation, define capacity gaps and sharing recommendations. The cyber security assessment and evaluation is based on the “National Cyber Security Index“ (NCSI) model.

Within the project the e-Governance Academy’s cyber security experts will launch in-depth cyber security maturity assessments of Georgia, Jamaica, Kenya, Moldova, Namibia, Rwanda, South African Republic and Tanzania. The countries to be assessed were selected in collaboration with the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
