The Ministry of Communications (MoC) will undertake a national review of Fiji’s cyber capacity with assistance from experts from the Oceania Cyber Security Centre (OCSC) in preparation for the forthcoming national cybersecurity strategy. Following the success of the inaugural Pacific Cyber Capacity Building and Coordination Conference (P4C) in Nadi in 2023, this partnership marks a milestone on cyber cooperation between the three stakeholders and a pivotal moment in enhancing Fiji’s cyber defense framework



The aim of this project is to carry out a review and provide evidence for the maturity of Fiji’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.


The Cyber Security Capacity Maturity Model for Nations (CMM) is a globally recognised cyber maturity model develop by the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC) at the University of Oxford and has been deployed more than 130 times in 90 nations around the world. The review provides a holistic assessment of each countries national capacity to manage complex cyber risks and identifies areas for improvement. Fiji undertook its first CMM review in 2015 as one of the world’s first countries to use the model. A lot of progress has been made in bolstering Fiji’s cyber capabilities since then. A new review will assist the MoC to evaluate this progress and inform the governments future cyber development priorities.

This is the second CMM review of Fiji and it follows one that was conducted in 2016.

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.


As a result of the CMM assessment report, the OCSC team will publish a CMM Report in 2024.


Through this project, the MoC, UK Government and OCSC are taking meaningful steps to implement the changes asked for by Pacific delegates at the 2023 P4C. Closer international stakeholder collaboration, addressing the identified priorities of Pacific peoples, reducing duplication, and making cyber capacity building more sustainable are all recommendations of the PBP P4C Outcomes Report that the CMM will help address.
