Kosovo: Cybersecurity Capacity Review 2015
Through a Collaboration Agreement with The World Bank, The Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre has facilitated a self-assessment of cybersecurity capacity in the Republic of Kosovo (Kosovo). The objective of the self-assessment is to enable Kosovo to determine the areas of capacity the country might strategically invest in to become more cyber secure. During February 9th-11th 2015, stakeholders from various sectors participated in a three-day consultation to evaluate cybersecurity capacity in Kosovo.
The consultations were premised on the Centre’s Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model which is composed of five distinct areas of Cybersecurity Capacity, a) Cybersecurity policy and strategy; b) Cyber culture and society; c) Cybersecurity education, training and skills; d) Legal and regulatory frameworks; e) Standards, organisations, and technologies.
There are multiple factors in each dimension, which describe what it means to possess cybersecurity capacity. In each factor, there are indicators, which describe the five levels of maturity, whereby the lowest stage implies a rather ad-hoc level of capacity and the highest stage both a strategic approach and an ability to dynamically adapt or change against environmental considerations.
Following the self-assessment in Kosovo, results are being displayed in the report, including recommendations on the next steps to be taken into consideration by the Government of Kosovo.
