This project aims to aid the development of secure digital societies in developing countries by evaluating cybersecurity situations, defining capacity gaps and sharing recommendations.




The objective of this project was to provide sustainable cybersecurity development according to the needs for it that had raised due to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.


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 cybersecurity development is timelier than ever to protect countries’ cyberspace and continue the digital transformation.

The cybersecurity assessment and evaluation is based on the “National Cyber Security Index“ (NCSI) model.

Within the project the Estonian e-Governance Academy’s (eGA) cybersecurity experts will launch in-depth cybersecurity maturity assessments of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Botswana, Georgia, Jamaica, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Northern Macedonia and Uganda. The countries to be assessed were selected in collaboration with the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


The project provided cybersecurity assistance and carried out various cybersecurity maturity assessments accordingly.
