Kyrgyz Republic: Cybersecurity Capacity Review 2017
In 2017, the Global Cyber Security Capacity Centre (GCSCC) undertook a review of the maturity of cybersecurity capacity in the Kyrgyz Republic, hosted by the State Committee of Information Technologies and Communications (SCITC). The objective of the review was to enable the country to gain an understanding of its cybersecurity capacity and form a roadmap for further actions. The review was conducted with support from the World Bank’s Global Cyber Security Capacity Building Program, that was the partner of the GCSCC for this review. The financing for the Global Cyber Security Capacity Building Program came from Korea's Ministry of Strategy and Finance (MoSF) through the Korea-World Bank Group Partnership Facility (KWPF), which is administered by the World Bank.
The assessment determined that the country had begun the process of developing different aspects of cybersecurity capacity across all five cybersecurity dimensions. It concluded that if existing efforts in different organisations and sectors are linked and coordinated, and if a comprehensive legal, strategic and operational framework for national cybersecurity can be established, these can form the foundation for more advanced capacity in the future. The review suggested a number of specific steps by which the Kyrgyz Republic’s cybersecurity capacity might achieve greater levels of maturity and might contribute to the development, among other things, of a comprehensive legal and regulatory framework, a national cybersecurity strategy and a national Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT).
