ITU, the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technology, together with 11 partners from intergovernmental and international organizations, private sector, as well as academia and civil society have published the National Cybersecurity Strategy Guide to assist countries in the development and implementation of national cybersecurity strategies including cyber-preparedness and resilience.
The guide assists policy-makers in the development of strategies that take into consideration a country's specific situation, cultural and societal values, and that encourage the pursuit of secure, resilient, ICT-enhanced and connected societies.
The guide's partners include: the Commonwealth Secretariat (ComSec), the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO), Deloitte, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC) at University of Oxford, Microsoft, the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre Of Excellence (NATO CCD COE), the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies, RAND Europe, the World Bank and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
The National Cybersecurity Strategy Guide was launched at the ITU Telecom World 2018 taking place in Durban, South Africa from 10-13 September.
