The Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC), in partnership with the Senegalese Ministry of Communication, Telecommunications, Posts and Digital Economy, helped conduct a national cybersecurity capacity assessment using the Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model for Nations (CMM).



The objective of this exercise was to enable the Senegalese government to prioritise areas of capacity in which the country might strategically seek investment in order to improve their national cybersecurity posture.


The GCSCC published the first  Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model for Nations (CMM) in 2016 to provide governments with a framework to assess their cybersecurity capacity across all sectors. The framework is meant to enable governments and enterprises to adopt policies and make investments that have enhance safety and security in cyberspace.


A more detailed account of Senegal’s cybersecurity posture and the impact of the project as of 2016 can be found in a interview series conducted by the GFCE in 2016 which can be found here. The full review of Senegal’s CMM account can be found here.
