Challenge

Governments around the world are designing their national cybersecurity strategies, building partnerships, employing legislative, regulatory, organizational and technical measures and engaging private sector and academia to counter rapidly evolving cyber threats and risks. In order to achieve those aims, they have to simultaneously implement cybersecurity measures, including:

  1. Set a cybersecurity vision, objectives and priorities;
  2. Effectively address cybercrime;
  3. Establish necessary legal and regulatory measures;
  4. Set a clear cybersecurity governance structure;
  5. Empower CSIRTS with sufficient capabilities;
  6. Build successful public-private and international partnerships;
  7. Establish trusted information sharing mechanisms;
  8. Raise user awareness;
  9. Strengthen cybersecurity related training and education programmes;
  10. Institutionalize co-operation between public agencies.

Our approach

The consultancy services provided by NRD Companies enable the governments to assess the adequacy of their national cybersecurity preparedness to prevent threats and cyber readiness to respond, mitigate and recover from cybersecurity incidents and fight against cybercrimes.

We focus on clearly measurable aspects of cybersecurity, use our technical knowledge and experience to provide insights into the operational efficiency of those measures as well as recommendations for cybersecurity capacity building in the country.

NRD Companies experience in helping the Governments to strengthen their cybersecurity suggests that no single methodology for cybersecurity maturity assessment is perfect, each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, NRD Companies do not rely on one particular methodology in providing baseline analysis services and use our experience in synthesizing a number cyber-maturity assessment metrics used by the ITU, OECD, EGA, Oxford and ENISA.
