Experts to start cyber security maturity assessment of Georgia


On 19 – 25 February 2021 Merle Maigre, the senior cyber security expert, visited Georgia to meet with various cyber security stakeholders and collected an input for the Cyber Security Maturity Assessment of Georgia.

eGA’s Cyber Security Maturity Assessment will provide input to further inform Estonia’s cyber security development cooperation with Georgia in particular to guide its focus and scope. The maturity assessment is based on the methodology of National Cyber Security Index  created and managed by eGA since 2016.
