Modern societies have a growing dependency on information and communication technologies that are globally interconnected. However, this interconnectivity also creates interdependencies and risks that need to be managed at national, regional and international levels. Enhancing cybersecurity and protecting critical information infrastructures are essential to each nation's security and economic well-being.
At the national level, this is a shared responsibility requiring coordinated action related to the prevention, preparation, response, and recovery from incidents on the part of government authorities, the private sector and citizens. The formulation and implementation of a national framework for cybersecurity requires a comprehensive approach. This framework often receives a label of a National Cybersecurity Strategy.

ITU has documented a reference model for national Cybersecurity strategy elaboration in the form of a guide available here.
The list was populated with the information acquired through the research of secondary sources. It was, however, built on the foundation of information provided by the respective governmental authorities during the data collection phase of the Global Cybersecurity Index project.
We strive to maintain the information up to-date and welcome new data from ITU Member States. We particularly welcome submissions from countries, which have, due to the absence of (reliable) data, not been included on the list above. Kindly contact us at email@example.com
