The Cybersecurity Capacity Centre for South Africa (C3SA) assisted Chad in conducting a Capacity Maturity Model (CMM) review in January 2022. This was in partnership with the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC), International Telecommunications Union (ITU), Norwegian Institute for International Affairs (NUPI) and Chad’s National Agency for Computer Security and eCertification (ANSICE) under funding of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.



The aim of this project was to assist Chad in carrying out a CMM review and provide evidence for the maturity of Chad’s cybersecurity capacity. This assessment enables the government to gain a better understanding of its cybersecurity capacity with the aim of prioritising investment strategically in cybersecurity capacities.


Chad becomes the first country in the Africa Sub-Saharan region to use the new CMM 2021 Edition with additional indicators that include international cooperation, cybersecurity expertise and human rights impact assessment.

The CMM supports the review of cybersecurity capacity in terms of five dimensions: Cybersecurity Policy and Strategy; Cybersecurity Culture and Society; Building Cybersecurity Knowledge and Capabilities; Legal and Regulatory Frameworks; and Standards and Technologies.

The assessment aims to contribute towards achieving cybersecurity resilience not only through gaining a more profound understanding of international cybersecurity capacity but also by increasing effective investment into cybersecurity capacity based on a rigorous analysis of data collected through the model implementation. Through the application of the CMM, critical gaps in all areas of national cybersecurity were identified and filled with scalable and effective measures, in cooperation with international partners.


The output from this project will be a CMM report reviewing Chad’s cybersecurity capacity maturity.


The CMM study was officially opened on the 1st February 2022 by the Minister Dr Idriss Saleh Bachar.
