In collaboration with the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC) and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) the Cybersecurity Capacity Centre for Southern Africa (C3SA) undertook a review of the maturity of cybersecurity capacity in Uganda at the invitation of the Ugandan National Information Technology Authority (NITA).



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


The CMM framework 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.
