Involving Stakeholders in National Cybersecurity Strategies: A Guide for Policymakers

There is a growing recognition that fostering a cyberspace that is free, open and secure requires a multistakeholder approach to cybersecurity capacity building.

A National Cybersecurity Strategy (NCSS) lies at the core of these efforts. By providing a comprehensive framework for prevention, preparation, response, and incident recovery, the NCSS represents a critical element of a country’s cybersecurity maturity and readiness.

This report is designed to guide policymakers on how to develop, implement and review an NCSS with the active and ongoing involvement of relevant stakeholders. Other stakeholders may also find it useful when considering the roles they can play in this process.
