eGA will advise the Uganda National Information Technology Agency (NITA-U) on updating the country’s cybersecurity strategy. An updated cybersecurity strategy will provide the overall cybersecurity direction for the government of Uganda aligned to the cyber laws and regulations as well as enable efficient management of cybersecurity risks and help to build a digital environment that citizens and businesses can trust.
To renew the strategy eGA experts will review existing cybersecurity interventions, previous strategies, related standards, policies and frameworks, current practices. Based on them eGA experts will recommend improvements to the strategy. Also, the experts will analyse international best practices from 10 countries that are at a mature level in national cybersecurity capability and identify the elements for adaptation to Uganda’s strategy.
Within the project, eGA will carry out stakeholder consultations on the draft cybersecurity strategy aimed at raising awareness on cybersecurity management and their role in the implementation of the strategy.
