An integral and challenging component of any national Cybersecurity strategy is the adoption of regionally and internationally harmonized, appropriate legislations against the misuse of ICTs for criminal or other mischievous purposes.
In order to help countries tackle the issues relating to Cybersecurity, ITU can provide support individually designed to meet the requirements of the requesting Country. Starting with an effective assessment of the current status of capacities and legislation as well as the countries demands, ITU will provide a tailored roadmap.
Equipped with strong mandates, ITU for many years provides countries with customized capacity building through its policies, strategies and Legislation when it comes to Cybersecurity. Over the years more than 80 countries from all continents have benefited from such support. Just within one of the many ITU projects ‘ITU/EU co-funded project for ACP countries’ ITU provided support to three regions with more than 50 beneficiary countries.
