A secure digital society cannot exist without a solid cybersecurity framework

A nation’s cyberspace, digital society, and e-services form a complex environment that cannot safely exist without solid cybersecurity protection. Governments and organisations have a responsibility to develop and maintain cybersecurity capacities, ensuring the safe usage of digital services. eGA’s cybersecurity experts provide unique insight into the security of your nation’s digital ecosystem and the trustworthiness of your national cyberspace.

In line with eGA’s National Cyber Security Index , eGA is focusing on the organisational, regulative and technical aspects of cybersecurity at a national level, and conducts cybersecurity maturity level assessments.
